Got iPhone? You got iGas!

Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) directs iPhone users to best prices on gas, goods and services.

The Oil Price Information Service (Opis), a ‘comprehensive’ source for petroleum pricing and news information has launched ‘iGas’ an iPhone application that is claimed to ‘help millions of users shop for the cheapest fuel.’ Opis CIO Michael Sinsky said, ‘The iPhone changes the game for consumers when shopping for the best prices on goods and services. The immediacy of being able to use the iPhone to perform targeted internet queries anywhere allows people to optimize their purchasing dollar.’

Users needing to fill-up simply touch the iGas icon on their iPhone and the phone’s GPS system locates their position and returns the 10 cheapest fueling stations in the area. The actual prices are displayed in low-to-high order, along with the brand and address. Users can also enter a zip code and the phone will return the 10 cheapest fueling stations in that particular area. Customers have the option to pre-select their fuel search criteria: Regular Unleaded Gasoline, Premium Unleaded or Diesel. iGas also provides route maps to a chosen gas station. iGas is a download from the Apple Store.
