Any ideas on starting or running a website just for data and charts?

I love data but hate the news. I always wonder "how do they know Americans drove 50 million fewer miles last month"? Where do they get that data?
I want to start a website just for data and charts so anyone can upload data and anyone could search for it.
The only limitations would be:
data has to be in Excel format (ubiquitous) and there has to be a citation (web link) to the original source of the data.
Any ideas on how to construct and manage such a thing?
