    Then, take that information & place it in the canadian geocoder here to get the latitude and longitude (& postal code). Will that work, or is it backwards?

    Here is info about all Canada Gas stations

    Will it work ?

    Anybody knows if those informations could be helpful in adapting gas price for Canadian cities ?

    I would be willing to participate to the effort, although my programming skills are somewhat lacking..

    I looked into that, the problem is that the zips.dat file is very finicky about the syntax of the information. Since Canada has zips with 6 digits, and the US uses 5, you can't just change the zips information.

    Price of Gas in Canada

    Hi guys,

    I am the developer of a new website allowing consumers to input, update, keep track of gas prices in Canada. All gas stations have GPS coordinates from Google Maps. Currently, the site is mostly active in the Montréal area, has also stations in Toronto and Vancouver but works virtually everywhere in Canada...

    If it can help, I could provide you with all available real-time station & price information for download in a format that you could define to suit your needs.

    The website is http://www.geogas.info/geogas/

    Let me know if you are interested...

    I'm also lookin for UK petrol prices displayed in RR and yes the links even the newer links (http://www.kompassist.co.uk/) seem to be down now, I've tried searching google but without success.

    If anyone has these gas icons zipped would you mind posting it here for those of us who got on the whole car PC train a little late.

    If it is supported in the newer version of RR would it be possible to add these icons to the newer RR install package? (I had to rollback my RR to a later version to keep my flash logos working)

    I also tried to get numerous files posted in lots of different threads from the link http://www.rrdownloads.net/ but this seems to just take you on a loop of junk sites and doesn't seem to have anything to do with RoadRunner on it. I tried there for the gas folder and icons but no luck!

    And any newer info on the battle to bring UK petrol prices to RR would be welcomed

    I had something that was working , but the site I was using did something that prevented me accessing it in the way I was. So I am having to rework it.

    Thanks for the prompt reply, I looked through your site to see if there were any updates, I'm looking forward to that and fighting my way through the Weather skin and related problems.

    Thanks again and please keep us posted

    Evolution, You still around? Looks like the site you were scraping the prices from has changed their web page a bit. The addresses and such are still parsing correctly, but the prices are now not pulling. I tried multiple zip codes in different states, all with the same results.
