I just added a new section to the right sidebar: Wicked Useful Sh … stuff. That’s where I plan to post wicked useful links to wicked useful resources around the web.
The first one on the list is GasBuddy. In particular; the GasBuddy Heat Map. This is a zoomable map that shows by color what the average gas prices are running on a county by county basis all across the country. By zooming in you can see what individual gas stations have been charging within the last 48 hours. (Or at least what the price was the last time a GasBuddy ‘field operative’ went by the station.) If you sign up you can contribute to the site by reporting the gas prices you see as you go about your daily travels.
If you have suggestions for other sites that are Wicked Useful let me know in the comments. If they make the cut I’ll add it to the list.
