Currently it appears that the Search Gas Prices ZIP Search finds all stations with the same postal city name regardless of the number of ZIP codes involved. This is useless when the majority of GB areas at a site have the same postal city names and only a few ZIPS have unique postal city names. Since the city name search is available, the ZIP search should not be based on the same technique.

1. The ZIP search should be based on station's ZIP codes. If search-time loading of the MSL is of concern, a per-site table should be built daily during off hours of all stations in a given ZIP. The table would be used to do searches.
2. Multiple ZIPS, separated by non-numeric characters (spaces, commas, slashes, etc.) should be allowed for those who live in one ZIP, but rely on stations of an adjacent ZIP(s).
3. City names + ZIPs should be allowed.
4. Multiple-ZIP and Name + ZIP searches should be allowed to be saved as Saved Searches.
