The Power of Apple’s Dashboard Widgets: Gas

When Apple added Dashboard to OS X 10.4, it opened the door to limitless possibilities.  Widgets can be created to do almost anything.  And while this is a very good thing, it can also be a very bad thing.  People are creating widgets that do a lot of crazy and ultimately useless things.  That’s why I enjoy finding a widget that is exceptionally useful.  Once such widget is called, appropriately enough, Gas.

What Gas does, it does simply and it does well.  It provides the user with the gas stations that offer the best prices in a given area.  Easy to use, functional, and it looks good too.

Just enter a zip code, a driving radius, and a grade of gasoline.  Then Gas tells you the cheapest place to buy fuel.  Download Gas now, and try it for yourself!
