This Google Map will find the cheapest gas stations for locations in Spain. The map has a search engine so you can search for any location in the country and the results are then tagged on a Google Map. Clicking on a tag reveals the current price for gas at that gas station. The prices are all scraped from the website of the Ministry of Industry so should be very accurate.

This one assumes the price of gas ONLY in the zipcode you enter. I remember seeing one that used prices along the way and asked the MPG of your car and size of the tank so it could figure refuling prices along the way. Anyone remember that one???
