Take a look at this site. I use it whenever I travel.
You can enter a zip code, city or a state and then you can select diesel or regular gas, etc. It also has a great feature TRIP Calculator that you enter your start and finish of your trip and it will find the lowest price of fuel on your trip. You enter your vehicle and tank size as well as MPG and it calculates the total trip.

Phoenix Gas Prices - Find Cheap Gas Prices in Arizona

Let me know if it works for you.

Man I feel so sorry for you guy south of the border having to pay those prices NOT. Sorry, I just can't seem to find it in my heart to feel for you when we have been paying north of $4.00 a gallon for diesel and almost $5.00 a gallon for gas for a long long time and we are now over $5.10 a gallon for both. I gave up complaining along time ago when I came to realize not all the thieves are in jail, most are either politicians or in the oil industry. Everyone might as well find something productive to do with their time like earning the extra money required to pay the fuel bills instead of complaining because that obviously isn't working to drop the prices.

Just when you think you have it bad; some joker comes along with a worse tale.

My dad use to do this the all the time!
The old joke about walking to school comes to mind.
Dad? Can I borrow the car to drive to school?
"Ha! When I was YOUR age I had to walk to school!"
Then grandpa chips in with "Shoes? At least YOU had shoes!"

You know, we do really have it lucky here in the USA. John and Debbie and our other Canadian friends are paying much more for gas and diesel. I have noticed in my travels to the Caribbean that many places have been in the $4 to $5 range for a long time......it is little hard to figure exactly, since they charge by the liter. Europe has had high gas prices for a long time also. It is finally catching up to us.

I did not mean to imply otherwise. Higher fuel prices do have benefits that may not appear so to those of us who have had subsidized fuel prices for years.

Smaller, more efficient cars for one. Less dependence on oil based fuels for energy production for another. While not a "tree hugger" by any stretch, I do understand where fuel for my house and car comes from and what makes electricity run out of my outlets.

We all want bigger and more powerful cars and politicians know that making that possible gets them elected and RE-elected. Funny how when fuel hits 5 bucks a gallon folks start talking about Hybrids and Electric cars, but let the fuel drop back to 2 bucks for a couple of months and that Volt gets traded for a BMW (or an new GMC 3500 Dually).

I have seen that so many times. I also notice as the fuel prices go up, many people drive more conservative, trying to save gas. Why the heck can't they do the same thing when prices are down ??? I make it a point to drive conservatively all of the time. I am convinced that if everyone drove to maximize their gas mileage, then our dependence on foreign oil would drop significantly.
