    ============================================
    Description

    GPS Gasoline takes your longitude and latitude (from Road Runner) and converts it to the nearest zipcode based on that data.

    It then takes that zipcode and sends a request to the internet for the gas prices in that area
    using
    Then you can browse thru the stations and see where the cheapest gas is where you are located.
    Requests are welcomed, but keep in mind this is my 1st program I've written

    ============================================

    Installation
    UNINSTALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS!!!! REMOVE and EXEC.tbl entries related to gpsgas
    NEWEST RR 7-8-06 Recommended Also works with IGNative version

    Run the Install File and Run the Wizard
    Apparently the installer is not registering the dll so you will have to do it manually
    go to run and type
    regsvr32 "c:\program files\road runner\gpsgasoline.dll"

    where c:\program files\road runner\ is your path to roadrunner
    add this line to your menu.skin

    Code:
    X,GPSGasoline

    Then make a button in Roadrunner with the Button Code "GPSGAS"

    That's it

          Woohoo!! it separates it by fuel type as well... great for us 'premium gas' users... lol. That’s the only price I'm concerned with. The difference between regular and premium can be a major difference from station to station so if you can only see the regular... you could be SOL... look'n sweet. Thanks!!

          Oh, ditto on the post for hosting... I can host as well if need be...

          Thanks again... Peace

              Next Release will have a better interface and RR intergration

              Also thought I might mention this 2 options here
              • I can make it a live data request tool meaning that you request gas it brings it up OR

                you have the computer connect to the internet at a given time and it will request and build a list of stations for you with in a certian mile radius or certian zipcode number (keep in mind some zips offer 2 or more towns worth of stations)
                from there i may be able to limit the results to those in a particular direction or even do it automatically via road runners gps heading (NE S W etc)

                just with some rough math here to do the batch downloads (if possible) 200 zip codes yields only a 35 miles radius id grab every third or fourth zip because of this but
                200 stored htmls @ 5k each = 1 MB just for a half hours drive
                so batch may not be worth it also the bigger the radius get the more uneeded stations get loaded


                please chime in with any thoughts thanks

                  I tried running it but I'm having to head to work now so I'll have to continue in the morning, but when I click on SEARCH it opens windows installer and tries to locate and install DAO.MSI . A quick search on google gave me this site "http://www.domainpunch.com/support/articles/dao360.php" but I don't have the time to try it out yet... I'll get back to you about what I figure out... Later.

                      Ok I haven't figured the probelm out that I had at home, seeing as how I'm not there, but I figured I'd try it here at work and I came accross another problem. Missing RICHTX32.OCX . I was able to fix it with this download from Microsoft. RichTX32.cab (zipped up. extract the cab, right click on the *inf file and click install) Other than that it worked fine

                        I think this is a brilliant idea...... one suggestion would be to integrate the ability to make a trip specific list of gas stations. for instance if im driving from North Carolina to new York city, i would drive from raleigh along Hwy 64 east then join I-95 north. If i could get the gas price of all stations on this route, then make the llist clickable so that if you click on the station you like, it gives you directions to the station....Now that would elevate you to royalty

                        oh yeah...make it skinnable also....

                            • trip specific will be hard to implement

                            • yes links will be supported
                            • skinning shouldnt be a problem

                              for trip specific, if you could somehow integrate with the mapping software (iG for instance) then once you enter your route in to iG, it has a built in list of points of interest (including gas stations). If this info could be imported into you app, it could simply match up the gas stations on the poi list to the list in your app
