With gas prices on the rise, drivers are looking for ways to save, particularly students. Currently, the average gas price in Dallas is $3.46 per gallon.

(COURTESY GASBUDDY.COM)

Here is my list of websites where you can find the cheapest gas near you:
- Gas Buddy
- Dallas Gas Prices
- Fuel Me Up

These sites enable drivers to find the cheapest gas available in the city, price changes and compare prices to the national average. Gas prices are updated in real-time and Gas Buddy even shows prices based on the grade of gas you use.

Some of them can be accessed through apps for your phone. Using these tools you can find the cheapest gas station on your daily route.

Big D Blog: New York’s Just Jealous of Cowboys Stadium

I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest Dallas Cowboys fan, but regardless of my NFL alliances I couldn’t help but be jealous of all the people in the new stadium tonight. The $1.2 billion dome is a masterpiece; John Madden, Emmitt Smith and Ross Perot all thought so. Laura Bush and W. were pretty content in their seats throughout the evening, and Diana Ross looked pretty stoked too (whether it was because she was performing at the stadium or because she was simply performing, we’ll never know).

D Mag’s FrontBurner cites the Star-Telegram’s article on the Cowboys Stadium “inauguration,” if you will, but The Observer‘s “Unfair Park” blogger Robert Wilonsky pointed out that The New York Times wasn’t in as much awe as the rest of us deep in the heart of Texas were.

Architect critic Nicolai Ouroussoff chiseled away at the mammoth stadium in his review until it became a “conventional suburban office park.” Ouch.

Maybe The Big Apple’s a little jealous of Texas’ ample space. Still, Cowboys fans and Dallas denizens would’ve had a much better retaliation had their team won the game on their new, ridiculously expensive turf. And speaking of a disappointing field goal, the Cowboys game was eerily similar to SMU’s game against Washington State this Saturday. Maybe it’s just a bad weekend for Dallas football.
