Pinpoint a gas deal?

Plug in your ZIP, state, city or even an intersection and Google Gas Maps will show you a ranked list of gas stations, lowest gallon prices first. The accompanying map is interactive and will get you more details, including the address and mapping possibilities. This is useful beyond getting a deal. With it, you can quickly find details elsewhere in the country that affect quality of life, economics, etc. This is, of course, similar to other social mapping programs that can be put to a zillion uses -- like the crime map posted to the blog earlier on.

Couldn't get this tool to work in IE 7. I also noticed the text states google maps but the link takes me to mapquest. Seems to be a useful tool if it worked.

Wonder if that's a browser issue.
