Try this where we read in a zoo series and then merge it with
a zero width regularly spaced series to create the result.

Lines <- "V1,V2
2008-10-14 08:45:00,94411.08
2008-10-14 08:50:00,90745.45
2008-10-14 08:55:00,82963.35
2008-10-14 09:00:00,75684.38
2008-10-14 09:05:00,78931.82
2008-10-14 09:20:00,74580.11
2008-10-14 09:25:00,69666.48
2008-10-14 09:30:00,77794.89"

library(zoo)
z <- read.zoo(textConnection(Lines), header = TRUE, sep = ",", tz = "")
tt <- seq(time(z)[1], time(z)[length(z)], 5*60)
merge(z, zoo(, tt))

The last statement's output will be:

> merge(z, zoo(, tt))
2008-10-14 08:45:00 2008-10-14 08:50:00 2008-10-14 08:55:00 2008-10-14 09:00:00
           94411.08            90745.45            82963.35            75684.38
2008-10-14 09:05:00 2008-10-14 09:10:00 2008-10-14 09:15:00 2008-10-14 09:20:00
           78931.82                  NA                  NA            74580.11
2008-10-14 09:25:00 2008-10-14 09:30:00
           69666.48            77794.89

date/time info).
