App Giveaway: Calculate the cost of gas with Cost2Drive for iPhone

Cost2Drive is an iPhone app that helps you price out the cost of your commute or road trip. It calculates this cost by using realtime gas prices along your route. And if you're curious if it'd be cheaper to drive, Cost2Drive will do that comparison for you as well.

I will be making a huge move from Colorado to California in a few months, and you bet I'll be using this app to help me price out the cost of the move!

Cost2Drive helps you quickly calculate the cost of driving anywhere in the US based on real time gas prices along your route, and now you can compare it to the cost of flying with our new flight cost comparison feature.
