Here’s how . . . I think.

In an e-mail newsletter I received this link:

It finds the cheapest gas station near you, without you wasting a gallon or two driving around looking for it.

Just plug your zip code in and it’ll tell you the lowest — and highest — price in your area. Check it out.

There’s a catch, and that’s why the “I think . . . ” I haven’t been able to try this out.

It doesn’t work with either of my active browsers, Safari or Firefox. It’s a Bill Gates party favor. Presumably it works only with Internet Explorer, maybe even only for MSN subscribers. My parents are. I’ll try it out on their computer and get back.

    If you’re on OS X, just use the Dashboard widget.

    It does work on Windows. I received this message at work and then forwarded it on to my friends. I haven’t tried it on my mac though. Will try the Dashboard widget.

    It works just fine on Mozilla for Fedora Linux, which is about as non-Microsoft as you can get.

    Try using gasbuddy.com
    It tends to be more up to date than MSN.

    I think MSN just excludes OS X users here.
