I have GasBuddy but only used it a few times. More of a novelty. I know who has cheap gas...if you want to call it that.

$4.20/gal for regular.

Right now in California it's something like $5 a gallon. In some places $6. Craziness.

On another note, I use Gas Buddy, but I think the UI is clunky and am looking for a better app. Thing is I like using Gas Buddy's data (crowd sources), but hate the app... Waze's take is still new and clunky as well.

Well what's the point of driving 10 miles to save 3¢/gal?

If your car takes 20 gallons that is a saving of 60¢...so you use more than that to drive to the gas sstation 10 miles away. Unless we're talking around the corner I don't even bother anymore.

Zanthe I am not using any Apps
And I did never try Waze option for gas but for traffic (love it )
Can it can tell you on your way those stations whith low price? jmp316
Yeah...I know. Just saying' that some people go crazy driving all over the city trying to save 3¢/gal. Makes no sense. Now in Los Angeles if you can drive somewhere to save 50¢/gal well then maybe! Then you're looking at saving $10/fill up on a 20 gallon purchase. :whistle:
