Last week I found a cool website called FuelMyRoute.com. It is a pretty barebones tool right now, but the idea seems great. When traveling you need a location to buy gas. Ideally, it would be good to know where along your travel route gas prices are the lowest.
FuelMyRoute.com was started in 2008 while Marcus Christie was planning a trip to Disney world. There were several great tools to find local gas prices, but not much to help in finding prices along a specific route.
This could be a great tool to try out when traveling this holiday season. Below is a screenshot of the results I got for the trip my wife and I are taking later this week. I was surprised to not have many options other prices along the route, but this could be dependent on the sources that FuelMyRoute.com uses. I imagine this will improve as the site grows.
So if you need a tool to help find lower gas prices this season while traveling, hop over to FuelMyRoute.com and give their service a whirl.

It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out why they have the largest buildings in most major cities.
With the recent Credit CARD Act, banks are looking to recoup some of their “lost” revenue. This is a very interesting graphic of the Bank Fee comparisons that have been proposed by many of our nation’s largest banks.
