Bug fixes and improvements.
I downloaded this app while on a road trip to places I don't pass through on a regular basis. As such, unlike around home, where I tend to know where the best gas prices are, Gas Buddy helps to point me in the right direction, whether I use its GPS mapping or just type in the name of the city I will be in or which I'm approaching. It's also useful in my home area, too, as it's not uncommon for me to have to drive 20 miles or more to connect with different clients in my business and with the variations in gas taxes, from city to city and county to county, the savings for buying gas closer to one of my clients than near my home can amount to 25 - 30 cents, per gallon. If I know I am going to be needing gas, I tend to carry enough cash with me to be able to get gas - so whether Gas Buddy shows which gas stations except credit cards or not, is a moot point with me. Besides, these days, nearly EVERY gas station accepts credit cards - in my opinion, this is NOT an area where Gas Buddy needs improvement. Gas Buddy is a very useful app to have, if you regularly travel forty miles or more on a daily basis. I give it five stars for helping me find the best gas prices in any given area!
Extremely useful albeit imperfect
I agree with other users that it would be helpful to have a way to input different cash and credit prices, and perhaps it would be reasonable to be able to specify what level of gas "regular" was: 87? 85? etc.
It might also be useful to hear of unusually long lines. I once went to the cheapest place in downtown San Francisco only to discover that it was running slowly because it was full service and because the extremely low price was attracting so many drivers. After 5 minutes in line I abandoned that place and went elsewhere.
Nevertheless this app provides a great way to keep consumers informed easily about the price of a fungible good. It may well be the best app on the market for that purpose.
Nice use of crowd sourcing to keep prices current, too. Together we can eliminate information the asymmetry between producers and consumers!
The standard price should be cash. The credit price is usually 10 cents higher than cash.
I would like to see an alert that's on the positive side for gas prices dropping instead of just the negative price hike alert.
I prefer the main page to remain the main page, instead of the map, as suggested by another reviewer. Though, I do agree with the reviewer on the use of flags to indicate the lowest, mid, & highest prices on the map page. Users should not be putting in the price that includes car washes or loyalty cards, waste of gas & money only to find out the station price listed is not accurate. We should be able see the loyalty card discount & specials...like a lower price with a car wash by tapping on the station in the listing, & for those that travel it could include whatever else that station offers...restaurant, mechanic, & so on. The only thing on the main page should be the station list with the cash prices.
