What is FuelMyRoute.com?
FuelMyRoute.com is a tool for finding the lowest prices of gas along a route. Gas prices are displayed on a map as well as integrated into driving directions provided by Google. You don't have to go out of your way to find good gas prices; all displayed gas prices are within one mile of the route. In an effort to provide the most accurate data possible, all gas prices displayed have been updated in the past 24 hours.
FuelMyRoute.com has a continuously running search engine specifically designed to gather gas price data from user-reported gas price websites. On average, FuelMyRoute.com's gas price search engine retrieves over 50,000 gas prices every day. Currently, only US gas prices are retrieved and available on the website.
Who is behind FuelMyRoute.com? Why did you build it?
FuelMyRoute.com was created by me, Marcus Christie. Worked started back in the fall of 2008. That was when we were planning a family vacation to Disney World in Orlando, FL. We were trying to decide which vehicle to take and how much gas would cost as we traveled across several states. At the time there were gas price websites that were quite good at helping you find the lowest gas price near you but none that would give you the lowest gas prices along your route. So I started thinking about how to solve that problem and began working on it in my spare time.
We actually used an early version of FuelMyRoute.com in late 2010 for another trip to Disney World (can you guess that we love Disney World?). It was satisfying to see an idea from conception to actual use. I continued putting some finishing touches on the website and it was released to the public for the first time in mid-May 2011. I continue to work on the website and have already made several significant enhancements to it since the public launch.
