    ============================================
    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.
