A few links that track gas prices and other related items (via the WSJ [1]):

GasPriceWatch.com [2] — A database-driven
site that allows users to search for the lowest prices across the country;
depends on "spotters" to supply data.
 
GasBuddy.com [3] — A nationwide site
that aggregates data from 170 local gasoline-price Web sites operated by
GasBuddy, such as losangelesgasprices.com or californiagasprices.com.
 
FuelEconomy.com [4] — This site
offers links for price information on a state-by-state basis, which drills down
into lists of city links.
 
FuelMeUp.com [5] — A consumer-based site that
depends on drivers to submit data on where to find the cheapest gasoline around
the country.
 
Fuel Cost Calculator [6] — This site
estimates the amount and cost of gasoline needed to complete vacation trips,
based on current prices from AAA’s daily online Fuel Gauge Report, as well as
the latest highway fuel economy ratings from the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency.
