Orem, UT (PRWEB) September 15, 2005
Motorists can now shop and compare gasoline prices through an on-line database that monitors more than 150,000 service stations nationwide and updates prices on a daily basis.
"The current high cost of gasoline is hitting the American people where it hurts and they need some way to fight back," said Mark Olsen, spokesman for Orbizon, Inc, developers of MapGasPrices.com. "With todayÂs national gas price averaging $2.90 per gallon people are searching for the best place to buy gas, we hope we can help make the process a little easier," Olsen said.
MapGasPrices.com allows customers around the country to zoom in on satellite images of their neighborhood gas stations and look up the lowest price.
"This keeps station operators honest because they know customers can now compare prices around town and around the state," Olsen said. Gasoline consumers can also zoom in on gas stations along a route and plan their fill-ups according to where they find the best deals.
Consumers who use the site can provide up-to-date information to increase the surveillance effort.
"We are suffering from gas pains and this tool lets oil companies, refineries and gasoline retailers know someone is watching
and directing traffic to the best deals in town," Olsen said.
