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.

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


5000 miles, 7 National Parks, 1 National Monument, 5 sleeping bags, 2 coolers, 2 kids, 1 newborn, 1 tent, 1 minivan and one heck-uv-a-packer for a husband.

2700 miles from for Lauderdale, FL to Los Angeles , CA. ( with Stops in new orleans, dallas, flagstaff, grand canyon, las vegas, san Francisco. We rented two ninivans and had to change them on las vegas because of oil change.

646 miles from Lebanon, OH to Gouveneur, NY for my wife's brother's funeral. Not only was it the longest roadtrip of our lives, but it was quite somber and unexpected.

1682 from IL to Steamboat Springs, CO (highly recommended to everyone) and back to IL. I really could have used this app for that trip.

From Northern California to Missouri and back. Yeah, I know what your are thinking. What the heck is in Missouri?

Ive been to New York and back 3 times because of my new baby daughter. Ive always wondered if it was cheaper to fly or drive.... It would be great to finally put this matter to bed!

My longest drive was 1959 miles or about 31 hours if drivin nonstop, but I frequently drive 528 miles about 9 hours. I make that trip about once or twice a month.

Gone from L.A to Herlpng CA to visit my girlfriends dad in the federal correctional institute. It's 8 hour drive. He recently got move to Madera which is a blessing cuz it's only 4 hours away but still a drive. Would like to use this so that we can count the cost for driving over there for our first time. Thanks tipb.

LA to herlong 8 hour drive to go visit my girlfriends dad at herlong federal prison camp he recently got moved to Madera which is only a four hour drive but still far I would like to use this app to count the cost for our first time driving over there. Thank you.

California to Wyoming (Yellowstone Trip) Three cars, 5 kids, over 4000 miles for the whole trip...I didn't drive for a week after we got home.

When I was a kid, we drove from Southern California to Yellowstone to Wisconsin to Tennessee then back home all because my mother was afraid to fly!

I moved from GA to MD when my wife got her new job and we were traveling with 5 pets in the middle of August's blistering heat with no air conditioning. It was one of the most terrible experiences of my life! Only 620 miles, though, so I am way on the low end here.

When me and my family moved from New Hampshire to Utah, I am not sure how many miles but it took a long time, especially because I was only 12.
