Handle hourly/spot market prices

I (and likely a lot of other users) have hourly electricity prices, related to my electricity area and time/days. Would be sweet to integrate spot market pricing into the charging history. Currently the charge session cost seems to calculate based on the price configured at the time the cable was connected/session started. Later changes of the current price don't seem to affect the session cost.
So I connect my cable at 15:00,when prices are high. Charging is paused through the api, and resumed when prices are low.

This makes the cost in session history quite meaningless/incorrect

Spot on Tim!

Spot pricing data is open source and probably not a huge effort to make the API and update the app with “charge when spot price is under xx cents…”
