What's New in Version 1.8
iPhone 6+ resolution support
Gas prices vary considerably from location to location even within a small urban area. For obvious reasons, gas stations on roads less travelled charge less—as much as 50¢ a gallon less. My car takes something north of 15 gallons to fill up. That’s $7.50 in my pocket. Worth a little trouble. Gas Guru finds the cheapest station near me. It’s usually not far. It doesn’t always have the price exactly right, but it’s close enough. Its interface is well thought out. The fact that it makes the marketplace more efficient (as an economist would put it) is a pleasing thought.
Sometimes accurate = NOT dependable
The app loads fast and has a sleek, easy to navigate layout. But where do the prices come from? Over the past month or so, I found several that were rarely correct. Accuracy is apparently not a strong point with this app, and with the volatile market of fuel prices, having current information is the primary key for apps based on fluctuating figures.
Another missing data point is the cash price - often the standard when comparing gas prices between stations.
Without the date and/or time a price was posted, or information about where the price came from, it's not worth my time to check this app when there are other more reliable apps at my fingertips.
I've been using this app for about a month now and I absolutely love it! I had tried out a couple other similar apps and was very disappointed with the results; so I was skeptical about this one at first. But I have to say, this app is very very accurate. This offers me the option of looking at all the prices in my area and compare them without even having to drive around! The prices that are given to me is accurate 98% of the time. The only times it isn't accurate is when the prices are suddenly surging too fast. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone that needs it!
