The name of this app says it all. It helps you find the cheapest gas around and lists stations by price. And it even gives you a map to help you get there!
- Gas Buddy [Free/iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Andriod, Blackberry, Windows 7]
Just pop your zip code, city or state into this app and it'll find you the best local deals on gas.

Submit it to the site and you can win free gas cards!
- Gas Book [¢99/ iPhone, iPod touch, iPad]
This app for moms gives you the top 10 gas stations sorted either by distance or price. They all pop up on a pretty, user-friendly map. You can also bookmark your fave stations and it even has a section where you can log your fuel efficiency so you can see how much your petrol is costing you per day (or maybe you'd rather not know!).
- Local Gas Prices [Free/iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad]
This free app let's you search by the type of fuel your car takes—regular, premium, plus, diesel. You can also select a radius and it'll tell you how many gas stations are within that distance.
- Fuel Finder [$2.99/iPhone, iPod touch, iPad]
Voted best gas app, this slick looking app will find you the most affordable gas around. You can search by price or distance and it all pops up on a cool color-coded map-view. It's also highly customizable and allows you to set the tank size of your car, input how many miles you drive per year and dictate your fuel grade preference.
