Fixing Scratch

I got a scratch on my passenger side front fender.  I think it happened when I parked too close to a curb.  Anyway, does anyone know a reliable, inexpensive way to heal this scratch?  I've never used rubbing compound before, but would something like that work?

You aint gonna rub that out. Sorry about your luck. Thats into the plastic. You need to find a body shop for that. They ahve some kind of special stuff to put into plastic and then its gonna need some paint. The sooner the better before the paint starts to fade and then they won't be able to match it very well.

Didn't mean to scare you. Sorry I've just been there with my contour.
My contour is sliver metallic and I went to the best body shop in the 40 mile radius and they still didn't match the paint perfectly. If you look at it on a angle in some sunlight you can see that the new paint is darker.
Very well put. Never thought of it that way.
