Map Mashup Cooks With Gas

Drive Pricing formLot’s of unbelievibly cool apps have been created with the Google Map API. Here’s one that’s cool AND timely – go to DrivePricing.com and fill out the simple form.

Enter the start and end address, the zipcode where you buy gas and the average MPG of your vehicle.

Whamo, it calculates the gas cost and displays the trip on a Google Map!

The only thing that would bum me out about this site is if I found out it was owned by some billionaire oil dude like T. Boone Pickens.
