From the WD40 website:

I've heard that people use WD-40 as a cleaner/remover. What can it be used on?

WD-40 removes sap, tar, adhesives, labels and tape from surfaces without damaging existing paint. It's an effective cleaner for tools, equipment, and vehicles. Use it to remove splattered bugs from the front of cars. WD-40 will even help remove gum from carpet. Just spray, wait, and wipe with a clean cloth.

Got to any Office supply store and buy a can of compressed air. You know, the stuff you use to blow dust off of your keyboard. It will freeze the gum just like that gum remover stuff and the auto store. Just cheaper. We use it here at work all the time and it works like a charm!
