Starting yesterday, a majority of the Gas Prices Heat Maps are no longer working. Issues range from no map being displayed when I click on a [map] button on my Favorites List, no map being displayed when I try to access the map from a stored and previously used URL link, to no map being displayed when I try to access the maps from any other avenue other than the menu bar above.

Here is one link that previously worked, that no longer does:

With all the CURRENT map topics, I am not sure why lowiowagas

Maps are 'somewhat' back...

http://www.iowastategasprices.com/Price_By_County.aspx
This Still Doesn't Work

www.iowastategasprices.com/map_gas_prices.aspx
This is the 'new' working link

Still can't update prices on the map. And the Date/Time Shown is rounded by the Hour, even though you can report prices by the Minute... Still Lots of work to get this even close to the 'old' maps (It is something to look at now, but not very useful!)

Martinman - any chance you could post a screencap and provide your browser information? Thanks.

Works for me too -

clicking on the link, I get a "Map Gas Prices" just fine;
after some Zooming Out, I get the Heat Map for St. Louis.

Maybe you need to clear/empty your browser-cache?

Okay, let's try that link [again]...

Here is one link that previously worked, that no longer does:

Sam's Club, Crestwood, MO

With the above link, I get everything *but* the actual Heat map.
