Meanwhile . . . Find Cheaper Gas Near You.

By  | 

Here’s how . . . I think.

In an e-mail newsletter I received this link:

It finds the cheapest gas station near you, without you wasting a gallon or two driving around looking for it.

Just plug your zip code in and it’ll tell you the lowest — and highest — price in your area. Check it out.

There’s a catch, and that’s why the “I think . . . ” I haven’t been able to try this out.

It doesn’t work with either of my active browsers, Safari or Firefox. It’s a Bill Gates party favor. Presumably it works only with Internet Explorer, maybe even only for MSN subscribers. My parents are. I’ll try it out on their computer and get back.
