Orem, UT (PRWEB) September 27, 2005
As the storms subside, consumers are hearing that gas prices may rise nearly 40 cents per gallon. On Monday, President Bush urged Americans to travel less and conserve on gas. Although forecasts look gloomy, consumers can track surprisingly positive information about gas prices on MapGasPrices.com.
While the Nation as a whole saw an increase of five cents per gallon, Monday, data from MapGasPrices.com is actually showing a continued slight downward trend in many areas. Consumers can follow such trends for themselves as they shop and compare gasoline prices on this online database that monitors more than 150,000 service stations nationwide and updates prices on a daily basis. Using the newly released Google mapping API, MapGasPrices.com makes it easy, interactive and even fun for consumers to stay on top of rising gas prices.
"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 national gas price close to $3.00 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 (http://www.MapGasPrices.com).
MapGasPrices.com allows customers around the country to zoom in to their neighborhood gas stations and look up the lowest price. The site collects gas price data from numerous sources including consumers who can contribute up-to-date information by adding latest prices or even new locations of gas stations.
"This keeps station operators honest because they know customers can now compare prices around town and around the state," Olsen said.
"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.
