New Gas-Price Widget for Mac OSX Tiger

Being eager, but basically cheap and lazy Mac users, we've yet to upgrade to the new widgetified Apple OSX 10.4, whose dashboard function allows for these weird little interfaces, called widgets. Widgets — like this one that allows users to find the lowest gas prices in their area, using data from gaspricewatch — either offer quick, new ways to get at commodity information, or hook users' systems into a Cupertino-based supercomputer that eats human brains for fuel, perhaps as payback for not being able to pepper our online experience with spyware and popup ads.
