Hello Everyone,

I was just wondering if their is any script for getting the current price of gas to display on a website? Is this possible or do I need to go do it manually every time the price changes?

Thanks

I'm not able to reply to this one, but have you thought of which is/should be your authority? I live in a small country, and although the stock exchange says one thing, the different petrol companies might well say something different. Is there just one price in all of the US (assuming that's where you are)?

Yes, I do live in the US. We do have different types of gasoline which are at different prices per gallon. I was just if there was a easy way to do it.

I'm sure it can be done if the price is published somewhere on the web or in a DB that can be accessed. You just have to wait for Eric to turn up, I guess... ;)

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
