    Like to run specific brands through my bike and this app lets me find that gas ... anywhere. A must-have for road warriors. Was wondering if you could include actual octane ratings for those of us that need to run higher than 91 in our machines. It would be helpful if this were at least available in the search parameters.

    New map is improving. But map still doesn't update when scrolling which is terrible! If I scroll the map, obviously I'm interested in stations in that area. Icons are still too big and too much screen space is taken up with buttons. I want to see the map. Show us only a small icon with the price for each station as that's all we care about. Please remove the funnel and the screen day / night buttons from the map as they are cluttering it. Those commands should be elsewhere in settings. Please allow me the option to sort by credit price and show credit price only in search results and in the map view. Many people don't use cash and only care about credit price. ARCO should show CASH since they are cash only. Full Review

    Really good 8 months back. A few updates ago the wheels fell and some features changed as many people have since complained about. There are still so many servos missing in Adelaide. Also GB_Direct prices submitted by these attendants are minus 4c discount so that has to stop and buyer be weary. Full Review

    GB has become utterly cluttered with junk push buttons, gas buying offers, scoring points for and other foolishness.. I can see the necessity for some ads but really loathe having to drill down (and while driving I do NOT need annoying distraction) to get past all of that to get to the prices. About ready to abandon GB. Bring back the simple matter of gas prices. I'd allow of few ads , but should be able to buy ad-free version Full Review

    Gas buddy, when I swipe to close on my Google pixel 1 will stay open and massively drain my phone battery life. I have to manually go to the setting-apps to force close it. This started happening a little over 1 month ago. Hopefully, you'll be able to look into this and resolve the issue. Full Review

    Recent update and changes suck! Used to be a great app. Now has all kinds of new garbage, crashes multiple times an hour and drains battery on my pixel 2. Please remove the bloat, fix the background crashes, and stop draining the battery. Full Review

    This is really useful when traveling. I was going through a town and found a gas station right near the interstate that had gas .10 cheaper than any other stations. The only thing that bugs me about this app is it's never right predicting gas prices. It always says wait until tomorrow prices may go down. The price either stays the same or goes up. I still give it 5 stars though. Full Review

    I travel alot for business, I use all the time. Took family to Destin Florida for Xmas drove at night. There's a stretch of road you better be at least half tank. I almostran out. But no worries this app told me exactly how far next station was and which was cheapest. Love it !!!!! Full Review

    This app has saved me quiere a bit of money. --- But, it has quit working on my BlackBerry phone. I do have access, at home, with my Android tablet, just not on the road. Would be nice to not but be to remember to look before leaving home, then hoping the prices don't change when I get to the town 45 miles away (And up to 35 cents less). Full Review

    It's a great app. But as Australian user it would be great if the app was more locally focussed. I don't need news feeds about US petrol prices, or the option to access the Gasbuddy pay system. Both are not applicable or relevant to Australia. Useful for US users definitely. Full Review

    Nice improvement on the ux, allowing price reporting directly from the main list if no price exists. Night mode still needed for list view, though, early morning or late night commutes with this app glaring in your eyes are bad news. Full Review

    John Homan Published date: January 19, 2018

    This is nice to have but performance of the app is doggy slow especially when you're actually at a gas station. The app takes forever to open at a time when you many times you only have have about 30 seconds to report prices before the driver behind you has run out of patience or the station owner sees you are reporting prices (some owners/operators don't like you reporting price) meanwhile this app takes more than a minute to open up on the station you're reporting prices on. The interface is nice and the menu works good, just really need to speed this app up by like 4X Full Review

    Guys be aware virus/spam app. This app suppose to give information about cheap gas but why it's running on background all the time like a spammer. It's using my phone's battery all the time. This happens when app is not focusing what it suppose to do. Also tried turning off notification for this app but it's keep coming back with different channels. This is virus kinda app. Full Review

    Lucian Clara Stefanescu Published date: January 19, 2018

    The rating is not for the app itself, which is fine. I just want to point that for some time now I have dealt with misreporting of gas prices. Either gas station employees report a lower price to get people come there or some people play bad jokes. It happened several times in the past 6 months and some prices were fresh (1-3h). Is it possible to add a feature where the reliability of reporters is rated? This makes the app not worth to use. Full Review

    I don't spend a lot of time with this app, so sometimes I can't find everything quickly. I should NOT have to reveal my location to use the map feature. If I click on the map and search an area stations should show up. Gas stations are not showing on the map in places I'm sure should be there. Full Review

    Great app for finding better prices for gas UPDATE: RECENTLY the app has been very unreliable! Bad pricing! Advertising $3.19 but it was $3.59! And its still that way for several stations! I'm reading a good price but when you get there its not the price. I'm very disappointed on this app. Cannot rely on the prices on the list! And this is for cash prices. Full Review

    Whatever you do don't use it to quickly look up pricing. New version has become nagware. Stay away, use other mapping app that doesn't pester with N different screens before allowing usage. Full Review

    Very useful app, I will never give 5 stars to a buggy app. The app crashes and fails to load regularly. The trip logging feature is nice, but not being able to classify or export the data is a huge negative. Classification seems to be in the app, it just simply doesn't work. Full Review

    I agree with the lastest reviews. I have used this tool for likely 5 years and all of a sudden it's turned into a POS. It's spies on you where you're at and drains your battery. Advertisements take half the page at least. It's slow to Startup it's just not worth it anymore. Don't download it you'll regret it. Full Review

    Heather Morgan Published date: January 14, 2018

    I used to love this app, gave it 5 stars. I haven't used the app for over a year. Now I downloaded the app onto my new phone & I'm shocked at how much the app has changed. It was sooo much better before! Now it's harder to find what I'm looking for because the layout changed and there's advertising in random places. This is just awful. I can't even do searches anymore, because it doesn't give results based on what's closest. Ex: If I do a search for gas in Philadelphia, the results should list the stations in order from closest to furthest away. When I'm in NPhilly, I don't care about the prices in SPhilly or Camden! I hope they change it back to a simpler, more streamlined version. When looking for gas prices, I want the info fast, not an app I need to mess around with trying to figure out what's relevant. Just show me my favorites so I can compare & move on with my day! And if I'm in a new area, show me the stations closest to me! It's not rocket science! You shouldn't have fixed something that wasn't broken. Full Review

    GAS BUDDY SPIES ON YOU!!! Check trip option!!!! Great app UNTIL one day I was in a hurry and left out quickly for an emergency . Turned app on and it told me EXACTLY how I had been driving!!! Spy much Gas Buddy?😒 It told me how I'd "save" gas if I didn't make quick stops and to prevent hard breaking. I was shocked! I don't even want to open it anymore. WHEN DID I EVER CONSENT TO THIS???? You've been tracking me this whole time and I only found out about it by accident! I was also disappointed that I couldn't sync my original Gas Buddy that I had for years Full Review

    It does not allow you to validate a screen name before creating an account unless it's already taken. So if you want to know if a screen name is available, then you have to create another account. Which means that that will be no longer available. Full Review

    Diane Pettey Published date: January 13, 2018

    I've used this app (android) for years. I hadn't updated it in a while, so I thought "why not?" Now I know. Suddenly the clean, simple, straightforward gas prices near me is useless. Major software bloat. I'm going to assume that the reason ALL of the stations within a 5+ mile radius of me have no prices at ALL (many actually ask if the station HAS gas!!!) is that many users are no longer using it. If I can't see prices, why use this (now) bloat ware? The trip "feature" is extremely creepy - especially since it's a NEW feature that has apparently been tracking my every move without my knowing it. WHYYYYYY? It's a shame since GB has orders of magnitude more users than the next competitor and so, theoretically, should have the most up to date price listing. I just can't use it anymore. Full Review

    Great for prices, Meh for everything else. Trip idea is great, but while carrying while carrying the phone with me running, it picks it up as a "trip", major fail! Also app freezes way to much like there is too much going on. Full Review

    Published date: January 10, 2018

    Reviewing version 5.0.2.x of Gas Buddy. I have been a member for 5 years and am close to uninstalling it. Larger ads, useless features that kill battery life and unnecessary taps to continue to search areas for stations are the biggest irritants. THANK YOU for making it easy to turn off the useless trip feature. That is 1 of the battery killers. I used to be able to swipe along my travel route to quickly check station prices and plan where to stop. For several versions now you have to tap the "search this area" button. I think it's time to start researching the competition. All the best with your future developments. Full Review

    Samuel Arenson Published date: January 10, 2018

    I like the app well enough, the one significant problem I'm having is that it is not clear enough when listing stations which prices are only available under certain conditions, like paying cash or using a certain kind of card. If they could improve on that I will rate higher. Full Review

  • GasBuddy: Find Cheap Gas
    Mike McCallum Published date: January 10, 2018

    I have no doubt this app has saved me hundreds of dollars at this point. There's enough contributors to keep listed prices current, but not 100% of the time, especially in early mornings. Wait till late morning or afternoon for listings to update. I can't knock the app for that though since it's on the users to provide that information, but besides that little gripe, excellent app. Clean, easy to use, and offers rewards for your participation. Highly recommended 👍👍 Full Review

    Two main complaints: "Trips" feature is turned on by default, and is a massive, massive battery hog. Should be OFF by default. Second, there is a massive problem of fraud, with users "confirming" prices they have not seen. I can't think of any way to police this. Full Review

    This stupid thing started tracking me without my permission. I turned off the "trips" but they turned themselves back on. I had a notification just today of a "trip in progress". That is absolutely unacceptable and a total violation of my privacy. I'm deleting and reporting this app. Full Review

    **warning** do not sign up for pay with gas buddy in the app!!! For finding gas prices good, do not sign up for the pay with gasbuddy app. They want copy of driver's license (gave it),credit bank card (gave it), then they send card (got it). Great Right? Wrong. getting it to work or anyone to answer the number on card is impossible...customer service, making program easily usable they failed completely. Can't get a human. Stupid recording that doesn't tell you anything, asks you to hang up if the info they gave helped or press one to speak to agent. But there's never an actual agent. Multiple days, multiple times. I needed help then, on the road, not a day or week later. Now I have to change my bank cards since they have lost my trust completely. Still disturbed they have my driver's license copy. Full Review
