"I see nothing in sight to slow down the increases in gas pricing," McClure says. McClure says we are seeing prices today vary from $3.89 in San Francisco, to $2.99 per gallon in Miami, Florida.

Many FuelMeUp.com consumers are planning ahead by locating the cheapest price of gasoline along their route. Prices can vary as much as $.80 per gallon over small distances and the website could help motorists who are watching their wallets. With Memorial Day approaching, many consumers are planning to stay close to home visiting lakes and state parks. FuelMeUp.com is a consumer-driven site to help visitors find the lowest-priced gasoline in their city or zip code.
