Drive Pricing

drive-pricingOne of the few reasons I still have MS Streets and Trips installed on my computer is the trip planning feature, most notably the gas usage estimator.  Otherwise I have to say Google Maps has pretty much earned my loyal patronage.  Now there’s a new site that’s poised to close the final chapter in my long running relationship with good ol’ Streets and Trips.  As we continue making the slow transition to web-based apps along comes Drive Pricing to fill this particular (but very useful) niche.  Curious to know how much that cross country road trip will cost?  Plug in a few simple elements and this handy tool will not only plot you a route, but tell you how much you should plan on budgeting for fuel.  This one gets extra points for doing one thing and doing it really well.
