I'm in the process of converting a Concrete5 website to Wordpress, and I need to figure out how to integrate realtime Jet Fuel prices into it (JET-A & 100LL) .. as shown in the lefthand column of this page:

http://www.indyjet.net/maintenance/

I've tried searching for Wordpress plugins that might allow me to accomplish this, but haven't had any luck so far.  So I'm assuming that I'm going to have to tap some kind of API and build & integrate something custom. Does anyone here know how I would I go about doing that? Or does some kind of Wordpress plugin exist that would allow me to do this?  Please advise.

Thanks!

Well, good thing this isn't a hyper-specific niche question or anything.

This is two problems.  The hard part is finding a source of real time prices that is available for remote querying.  Good luck with that.

Once you identify a source, using PHP to consume it and display is probably pretty easy.

I agree.  The hard part if finding the source of real time price that I can tap.  Does anyone else here know where I might be able to find that kind of resource?
