I love this! Any chance there is an api so an application can connect with it on the fly?

This is a useful tool that I use to check the built in calculation I am using. For the people asking about being able to calculate distance between zips (as the crow flies), I'm sure this can be done in other programs. But I've done it using a custom function in FileMaker (Claris) that someone else created and shared for free that just needs the parameters of the Lat and Lon for both zip codes. And I know of sources that can provide that info by zip for all of the USA (for a fee though, maybe somewhere it's free). Good luck

Useful tool. However, would be much more useful if bulk uploads would be available

Hi, that idea has been rescinded.

How far away are you to Bulk uploads??

Hi, it will not be possible. It would be a big drain on server resources and more likely that such a new feature on this free page will be used for commercial purposes.

How do you calculate distance between two zipcode areas(first 3 digits of the zipcode)?

What would be wonderful is to get an average of gas prices between two different zip codes. Say total average of reg gas prices multiplied by the number of miles?

SOME OF THE LAND TRANSPORT DISTANCE BETWEEN 2 ZIP CODES IS WRONG. EXAMPLE - 36277 TO 36207 IS APPROX 11 MILES. BUT YOUR SITE SAYS 17.32

Trying to use the one for zip codes, when I click on "SHOW", it seems to refresh but doesn't show the distances.
I am using Pale Moon browser.
I tried Firefox and it works, is there something I can set to make it work?
By Gary on 14th July 2019
thank you very much for this useful tool. I really like it. and appreciate your efforts.
