The objective of this article is to establish the fundamental components of a mobile architecture model that enables the development of a production-graded solution for local (Puerto Rico) gas prices and gas station locations. It will establish this model by identifying each component based on the responsibilities of the system. Components will be identified by looking at the basic needs and desired features of the proposed system, from a high-level point of view. The approach is to match the system expected behavior with technologies that enable those functionalities. Once the components are identified, it will describe the interaction between them and take the basic considerations regarding mobile infrastructure solutions like communication technologies and security system. It will also provide a prototype mechanism to establish a custom/proprietary advertisement system through the mobile application in which advertisement space will be allocated at the mobile graphic interface. Finally, it will consider how the technology developed here can be expanded into other areas/solutions. Key Terms - Gas Prices, Mobile Architecture, Mobile Authentication, RESTful API, Web Server.
