Place to find cheap gas:

Want to buy some cheap gas?

OK, OK, so there’s no such thing these days. But want to get the best price available?

You don’t have to drive all over town to find out which station is offering the lowest price on a gallon of regular.

Just visit, one of more than 170 Web sites run by to help consumers find cheap gas prices.

“I was always kind of frustrated when I filled up with gas and went down the street and saw it a few cents cheaper,” says Jason Toews, a co-founder of

He started calling stations for the lowest price. But fearing he was a competitor, station operators wouldn’t tell him the going rate.

That’s when he got the idea for the Web sites, which gather prices through a network of volunteer price spotters in each area who then post the lowest prices in the past 48 hours.

The sites, in total, receive between 200,000 and 300,000 unique visitors a day, Toews says.

 “People send us e-mails saying they love the Web sites, love the idea,” Toews says.

“And why not? It can save you cash.”
