Open Gasoline Price Data

Remember the work I did a few weeks ago to serve up Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick energy interchange in an open format via Pachube?

It seemed like a good idea unlock data on regulated petroleum prices trapped inside Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission HTML in a similar fashion.

So I’ve created some PHP code to scrape the data out of the HTML and into XML, JSON or Pachube-friendly formats and a Pachube feed the uses this code. The result of all this means that you can programmatically pull current gasoline prices from Pachube and use the data to build new and interesting applications.
