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.
Reliable, convenient, and easy to use
I checked out several apps, and talked to a number of people before selecting this one. I have found it to be very easy to use, even as technology-challenged as I am ! It has been accurate so far, I have been using it for almost a year. Several people warned me about the "other drivers using it" feature of a different, well-know app and I certainly did NOT like that - neither did those who were using it. I definitely recommended that they switch to Gas Guru !
