Gas prices up - use the internet to find local cheap gas?

Here is the latest AP wire copy on the Lundberg Survey...

Gas prices up eleven cents nationwide
The Lundberg Survey says the average price of self-serve regular gasoline has hit a record high of three dollars, 18 cents per gallon.

That's up more than eleven cents over the previous two weeks. The previous record adjusted for inflation was three dollars, 15 cents per gallon in March 1981.
A gallon of mid-grade gasoline averaged three-29, and premium cost three-40, according to the latest Lundberg Survey of seven-thousand gas stations across the country.
Nationwide, the lowest price for regular fuel was two-87 in Charleston, South Carolina, and the highest was in Chicago at three-59 a gallon.

Central Louisiana prices are climbing and this brings up our Pain at the Pump program. The idea is to find as many people as possible that can form a network and find the least expensive gas prices. It may be just a few cents difference per gallon, but at these prices anything can help. Just post your comments and we'll see if the power of the Internet can help people save a little money.

Who do we thank for it being so hard to build a refinery when they are SO badly needed? There's one being built in Arizona but they're having such a hard time getting the necessary permits, more than likely due to the conservationists.
