Apparently there is some kind of crisis in USA due to gas prices hitting $4 per gallon. As some-one based in UK paying more than twice as much I am not particularly impressed, but be that as it may.
One of the most popular tools on the iPhone to find low gas prices is Gasbuddy, the appified version of Gasbuddy.com. The app is currently the 5th most popular free app in the app store.
Gas Buddy collects information on gas prices from its estimated 70 million users in the United States and Canada, who type in the prices as they see them, picking from a list of gas stations.
Users can then search the gas prices in their town, or any town for that matter, and find the lowest price.
"This is their way of fighting back is to shop smarter, saving money at the pump," Gas Buddy Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan said.
Gasbuddy can be found in Marketplace here.
