Does such a thing exist? It would be nice to know where close to me, has the cheapest petrol on a given day?

If you use Waze on your mobile to navigate, you can also search for petrol stops including current prices. Crowd sourced from Waze users.

We're not very well serviced here for price apps. Waze is probably your best bet, as for navigation you can navigate to a petrol station, which will give you the prices....annoyingly you can't just browse for one on the map.

Gas buddy is another good one that's just opened in Australia....but not here yet. There was another iOS one I found, but it was always wrong. At least I've found with Waze that someone has got there and updated the prices...or it's pretty quick to update them. As with any crowd sourcing if there's no one around with the app, prices won't be updated.

Price watch I thought only gave regional guides...not individual prices at individual stations.
