I was able to find the developer's website and the reason that no one is receiving gas updates any longer is that gaspricewatch.com has blocked the widget from receiving updates from their server. They have offered the developer a new contract to continue to receive updates, but it, at this time, is much too expensive for him to pay.

This widget no longer works due to the sources wanting to charge -- too bad, it's the only integrated widget that does this at the moment...

While none of the versions of the Gas widget now work (3/27/09), it's interesting to see that Google Maps has a feature (that works) to show gas prices with info coming from the same GasPriceWatch.com. maps.google.com click on 'My Maps' click on 'Gas Prices from 'GasBuddy.com'

Version 3.1 Mac OS X 10.5.2 This widget, all of a sudden, failed to retrieve gas prices about a month ago. Failures every day since then have been experienced.

This version 3.0 doesn't work at all. The price just spins and spins forever and never stops. On the rare occasion that it does stop, it just says N/A. I have a feeling that something has changed with gaspricewatch.com because if you go to that website, you can't get a price unless you type in a Gas Station's pyhsical address, or zoom in on a Google map and click on one. Does anybody still have the old version or know where to get it. The developer has no contact info either apparently.

Everyone who whines about how Gas did not find the cheapest gas in their area or how it did not find the brand of gas that they believe should be shown should ask themselves when was the last time that they contributed gas price information? Gas relies on its users to provide gas price data and about gas stations. If you find a lower price, update it. If you find your favorite gas station is not listed, have it added. But please don't whine about how it is not accurate if you haven't offered a price update for your favorites.

The widget does what it does, but I'm rather disappointed that there are no third-party gas stations or even ARCO. But I think that's more of a site issue.

absolutely amazing. excellent job. I have no issues with it. It works as it says' it does. I love the fact that when you click the gas price, it takes' you to a map showing the exact location of the station. EXCELLENT WORK!!!

I just wanted to point out that this widget has failed to locate the lowest gas prices in my area, even if I go to the farthest amount of miles that Is allowed in the search it still dose not find the lowest gas prices and I wonder if the developer has something going on with certain gas companies and then only shows them. Yesterday I used the gas widget for regular gas price search in my area, 14613. It started out at 2.37 a gal and went up from there no matter how far I increased the search distance. I did not believe it because in my area is a mini gas-store chain that is known for being vary completive. I drove out there which is about 5 miles one way and I found the price per gal was 2.28 and now I see that I should not rely on the gas widget. I would hope you keep this in mind when you use this app too.

Don't know if it can be done... I would like to see an option that would let you restrict your results to a specific city or even state. I live in Nebraska, but my home is less than 4 miles from Iowa where gas taxes are cheaper. When I get the results, even for as small as a 5 mile radius, I get a list of Iowa gas stations and never the prices at the stations closest to me. It would help me out if there were a way to filter my results to Omaha, NE or even just Nebraska. Its the downside to living on a state line I guess. Great widget otherwise.

Needs a refresh button on the front. The only way I've found to refresh the prices is to change an option. Other than that it's great!

One of the better widgets out there. Works as advertised, good graphics and effects. Appreciate the constant attention this app gets from its developer, and the steady list of improvements as it matures. Great job and thanks.

Will this widget need a completely new version every week to keep up with changing prices? Seems that building something into the code to fetch updated information would be the easier way to go, but then again, I haven't written a program since BASIC back in college....

Instead of complaining about how it doesn't work, I sent an email to the developer, who replied within an hour with a fix. Not only is it good looking, it's useful!

Useless. I never get a price, just spinning numbers. Consequently the up/down arrows do nothing.

I love the concept, and I've become a spotter. But there really DOES need to be an option to only select prices updated within the last 24/48/72/96 hours or some such. I see some $1.98s listed, and no one's been below $2.10 here for a while.

Make sure your next version conforms to Apple's Human Interface Guidlines. They have some great suggestions for improving your UI, as well as examples and code samples.

Hey Tim... you get your mental capacity from having graduated from Junior high School and The Discourses, Comic Book edition? Don't try to alienate Americans who think differently... that's what makes this country great... unless you're cool with the KKK and Nazis...? In fact, you SHOULD read 'The Discourses' and 'The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu: Humanitarian Despotism and the Conditions of Modern Tyranny'- that last one's a real test of your ability to think... but you could always stick to Marvel™ Comics...

I agree, what's missing is a "Last Updated: ..." thing at the bottom! Feature for 1.1, please!

I have had no issues with this widget. Does exactly what it says and looks good. A little large for me though. I'd rather see it all half the size.

Worked for me, but there was no way to reset; the "i" button did nothing; when I clicked on the various grades, nothing happened; The map took me right to the internet and the google map. So, it needs work, but it'll be handy when it is up to speed.

the other problem is it seems to use gaspricewatch.com -- which is run by volunteers meaning the info could be wrong (by having either incomplete or out of date info)-- for instance my area's info was last updated 4/25/05 --clearly not helpful.

like the other reviewer said, this has promise BUT it has too many bugs... i mean it's neat, but it needs lots of work still -- it just seems *very* sloppy at this point. i hope for the developer's sake that an update comes quickly.

This has promise. I like the fact that the name and address of the station are included, as well as different grades. I won't comment on the bugs, since the developer said in his release notes that there are lots of 'em. So I'll also reserve rating it until it's ready for prime time.
