False Prices

As you may already know: all prices on GasBuddy are posted by volunteer spotters. Unfortunately, with the massive number of prices being reported across our 200+ websites and mobile apps for Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry, prices posted outside of our guidelines do make their way to the price lists, occasionally. While we may not be able to prevent every discrepant listing, we do attempt to remove any information that is obviously wrong.

By having thousands of prices entered daily this is how the process of a "real-time" gas price information system works. Our goal is to get tens of millions of people posting gas prices. Once that happens, prices will rarely be out of date or inaccurate. I'd like to encourage you to post any gas prices that you spot which meet our guidelines. The more current prices there are posted in accordance to our guidelines, the more we'll all save at the pumps!

If you notice an inaccurate price on GasBuddy, please update it with the current price for everyone else in your area to see.For more information on how to report a price view: Reporting a Price

If you notice a member repeatedly posting inaccurate prices to the site/app, please let us know the member name, station info (name, address, city/town, state/province) the false price posted, the correct price and the time of the posting.

Thanks for your help.
