    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I appreciate all your hard work on this. For me the cheapest gas station is always the same one - no searching necessary.

    Maufait's Gas Price data comes from MSN. But MSN's format is not mobile firendly and we tried to make it mobile friendly and easy to access in via mobile phones.

    I have looked around a lot before adding that data source to Maufait. After updating Maufait and going and checking gas stations randomly and reading on the net, here is what I found out:

    - Most of the Gas data is gathered by one central agency that call regional offices of gas station franchises. Sometmes they also randomly call gas station (Sample of BP, Amoco etc). Once they gather the data they apply prices to other Amoco, BP etc of that region. This data is collected either once a day or thrice a week.

    So if a gas station changes the price just after the data was collected then it will be slightly off. Unfortunately this data is not as dynamic as the stock price data is transmitted (real time).

    I have seen in the 'Kum and Go' near where i live that the price matched what was on maufait till they changed it in evening.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~this application may not be as friendly for Canadian users. The setup wants zip code and not postal code, and attempting to locate local interests doesn't work. Maybe a Canadian version is needed? Thank you! 4 trying anyway.
