So I saw a new feature of City-Data: How much will you spend on gas?

And I find it to be superb for travelers. You enter your starting location, destination, model of car, average mileage, average price of gas.. and voila!

From there, it gives you directions, and approximates how much you will spend on gas to reach your destination.

Does the same as many other products out there right now, but has less features. You cannot add stopping points and it assumes you need to take the shortest route, which isn't always the best. Traveling from my house to Northern Maine, it has the route through Canada, which is a PITA when traveling. Also said that all but 5 miles were highway miles, which is not true. Still has a ways to go to be a real help for other than short trips from what I see.
