    The best way to find gas prices.
  • Doesn’t show all stations depending on map zoom level

    By Estaaaaaa
    Used to be great but now there’s so much bloat and ads and worst of all, doesn’t always show all stations. To check for yourself, filter stations so not as many show up then zoom in and out of the map. You’ll see some stations only show up when zoomed close in, once you zoom out they will disappear from both map and list view. Of course the giant iHop ad icon stays no matter what zoom level it’s on. Edit: Developer’s response is incorrect. Test it out yourself.

    Sitting in a station and the app doesn’t show your location. Station address can’t be seen in its entirety.

    I find it fun and educational to travel my city and see the ever changing price patterns that occur in different areas. Gas Buddy is the only app I know that gives me this opportunity.

    Apparently don’t know my password.😒 but when they send me the login link, it only brings me back to the page where I requested the login link in the first place.

    Has anyone who developed the latest update tried it. It just totally locks up when you try to manipulate the map
  • Update app to support dark mode

    By Acextreme06
    The app has been great for the most part. Please update to enable a dark mode option, then I’ll add two more stars for a 5 star review.
  • I loved it till I found out they were stealing data and recording every place I went

    By msheltra
    If this is how they think I’m going to look for someplace else to support their application/purpose. They just told me they "only deal with trusted partners" and the only problem I have with that is they didn't tell me at the start they were going to sell my information including location driving habits etc. because I should be the one to have the first choice on releasing my information, not you. Thank you for the reply however.
  • Please add hours of operation

    By Mom8384
    It doesn’t help to know what a price of gas is if you get to the station and it’s closed. Please post the hours that the stations are open and selling gas.

    Really annoying to keep receiving notification about a discount. Liked the old site much better. Too much crap on the site now.
  • Prices are almost always wrong

    1
    By fenixfire077
    Prices are almost always wrong. I’ve lost a lot of time trekking to off-the-beaten-path stations which were supposedly offering great prices only to find out they’re prices were incorrect. Gasbuddy needs more oversight. Great idea though. Ability to check-in for extra discounts at select gas stations is a deceiving offer. In my opinion, and I drive a lot, the premium membership was a waste of time and money.

    For some reason this app is using way too much storage on my phone. I love the app and I'm even paying for the premium membership, but I recently discovered that it was using that much phone storage. Like how and why is this necessary?
  • Great App, but what happened to Sam’s Club stations???

    2
    By Esummey
    Very good way to quickly find right price. Now if I could just win some free gas. Sam’s Club is incorrectly displayed. It is located in Harker Heights, TX but is displayed in Killeen Texas. I will be glad to she you on the map. As in wrong answer!

    Sign In with Apple is not available on iOS 13 in iPhone xR. Rest of the features works fine.
  • Needs Improvements to Filter/Sort

    4
    By LibertyJAH
    Two things that would make a good app even greater: 1. Allow filtering by stations that have been updated within the last X number of hours. A station listing that hasn’t been updated in three days is useless. 2. Allow sorting of reviews by date. A recent station changed ownership nine months ago but all the top reviews (negative) are from three years ago.
  • LOVE THIS APP!

    By saradeLoney
    Why pay more when GasBuddy pays for itself, and you get GasBack rewards for shopping online? $6.99/month for the PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP has given me Roadside Assistance, discounts on gas throughout the month (with specials such as BP), and as soon as my GasBuddy friend is verified I'll qualify to pay even less each time I put gas into my car. Most worthwhile app I have ever purchased!

    Gas Buddy is not only good shopping locally for the best gas prices, it’s great while traveling, because you can shop several hundred miles ahead for the best price, then get directions to that station. I use it all the time! And, the discount puts icing on the cake!!
  • Where’s the gas?

    2
    By lost_in_Florida
    Used to love Gas Buddy app because it was quick and easy to navigate to find cheap fuel. Now it has become another bloated, ad infested app where you can’t find the data you want without infuriating full page ads for products you don’t need. I opened gas buddy to find gas prices, NOT to buy a new car, or any of the other ads you threw at me!! Dear developers, take a clue from Google’s search engine. Your app doesn’t have to look like MSN’s or Yahoo’s home page, bloated with ads, to get the job done.
  • Do not buy premium membership!!!

    2
    By Round Boiii
    The card they give you works practically NO WHERE! I paid the monthly fee for NO REASON because it didn’t save me a dime. When I tried to contact customer service (which you can only do by email if you choose to cancel), I was told “we are experiencing higher than normal ticket volumes. Thank you for your patience.” That was two weeks ago. The only reason I’m giving 2 stars is because the app helps you find cheap gas. But if you’re expecting to save money with premium you, will, not.

  • Great resource

    My only problem is there is one station in my area that doesn’t have E-85 and gas buddy refuses to remove it and people keep on posting inaccurate prices for it.
  • I like the older version of this app.

    3
    By Rosinski65
    When I first started to use this app many years ago. It was clutter free of ads. Gas was listed with current prices all in a Dow of five or more stations. Now it list them 1 here then a car sales ad then 2 more. I jus liked the old style before they got greedy for ad revenue. Just my opinion.
  • AD MORE Fuel types

    By IdoReviews!
    I get that its not a gas for the car but id like to see fuel options added for kero, def, off road diesel, and ethanol free gas thats would be really great to know and have available esp if were reporting prices why not report everything a station Has to offer then if your passing by and want or need a specific has type or fuel you can see that

    Sneaky, sneaky app. Collects a lot of data.
  • Spying on you

    By Xvd68
    This is a great app, but if you don’t want it snooping, you need to go into the app settings (in the app, as well as iOS settings) and find all the places where by default the settings allow them to track your as well as share your data with 3rd parties. Remember to close the app when you aren’t using it, and check the settings again after app updates.
  • Read the privacy policy then delete the app

    “If you access the Service through a mobile device, and if your preferences are set to permit collection of the information, we will also automatically collect information about your driving habits, including, but not limited to, driving distance, speed, acceleration and braking habits," the privacy policy reads, in part. Sure, just the gas station location data could be used to triage locations like where you work, live, and go out, but explicitly collecting data on your whereabouts in the background all the time feels like a full-on manifestation of Big Brother. Imagine if GasBuddy experienced a data breach. Do you want a hacker to have information about where you live?

  • First price is ALWAYS "members only" pricing

    If you have a membership to Costco or Sam's Club, this app is your buddy. If not, don't bother.
  • Scam

    1
    By DumpsterFireCompany
    Simply stated, this company is a scam. I made my first online purchase at Walmart, after clicking on the “deal” link that’s in the app. Presumably, the idea is that as long as you use the link and complete your purchase online, they will give you 4% “gas back” on your purchase that can be redeemed at the pump. I spent over $500 on tires, and submitted my proof as requested (email confirmation for purchase being the same as on file with gas buddy acct, order number, etc). Took 3 days for a response and it was quick and rude when I received it. “Thanks for the email” followed by telling me pickup orders aren’t eligible for gas back, as well as saying I should check the fine print (which I carefully read the disclosures before I completed my purchases and nowhere does it say your choice of delivery or pickup affects anything). I work in banking so disclosures are everything to me because I see people all the time have their expectations not met because they never read the disclosures they agreed to. If I had paid for the premium membership, I’d be even more annoyed because it was something I paid for to be treated as such, like we are bothering them for asking to hold up their end of what they are promising. But since it is free, I will be simply removing my bank account from the gas buddy card and going back to using my fuel rewards card at Shell stations like I used to. Not worth the hassle. At all.

    Using XS Max. Splash screen takes what seemingly lasts almost forever to load. Uninstalling doesn't help. Now you can use your iTunes credentials to login to Gasbuddy? No, no, no. This is wrong on so many levels. The last time I visited the Apple Genius Bar I was shown that this app has been flagged for issues. IOS version missing features compared to the "other" version. Can't name it, unfortunately. GB desktop site has changed too...for the worse in my opinion. As far as saving money goes, I don't think that's what this app does. It just provides you with the info to make an informed decision to avoid gasbars who are gouging you more than the others. These inflated priced gasbars have higher than average retail profit margins. You're not saving money by avoiding them unless they're your normal goto gasbar. It's like saying you saved money on that ugly shirt that's on safe at clearance but you never would've bought it at full price anyway. That's not saving money. Finally, Developer loves removing critical reviews. Mine keeps on getting deleted. Why do you think this app has such a high rating? Let's see how long this one lasts.
  • Best and cheapest gas around and I don’t mean the quality of the gas like other idiots have shared

    5
    By Buster.2018
    Sam’s has station off of Redbud and 380 in McKinney TX has had the lowest gas prices in town. Just wanted to reiterate that the cheapest and/or lower gas prices doesn’t mean that it is cheap gas by any means like some idiots have stated in their reviews. I question their opinions in this matter for I’m more than certain they do NOT HAVE A CLUE, NOR HAVE A DEGREE IN ANYTHING much less how to tell cheap gas from any other places that sell gas so just remember that when you decide whether or not you want to purchase gas from Sam’s or Costco and/or Buccaneers which usually have the exact same prices per gallon that Sam’s does. I guess their gas is cheap through and through as well, NOT! That person is nothing but an idiot who stated that comment in his review. I have never had any problems or issues with the quality of Sam’s Gasoline in all the years I’ve been buying from them. The only idiot here is who made that bogus claim that there gas was made from the cheapest ingredients and compounds that gas is made out of and for me I’m always going to stick with Sam’s gasoline and grocery products they have for they have a great reputation and quality of all of their products that are above and beyond anyone else.
  • Privacy Concern

    There’s a report that Gas Buddy’s terms of service allow the company to trace your location at all times. One data breach and who knows who knows where you live, work, and like to hang out. Delete the app!

    I suggest folks read the data that is collected by Gas Buddy. Even if you aren’t using it the app collects your driving habits such as speed, braking habits, etc. And guess what? They may share this with insurance companies and law enforcement.
  • Too many emails.

    By 2shoes_also
    I just want the app to tell me where cheap gas is. Too many emails for contests and other things. Other than that, the app works great Update 9-16-19. Just deleted the 5th email of the day

What am I to do tomorrow when I go out & try to log prices? I won’t be able to do it! Please fix this ASAP! Update: I updated the app & played around with it for awhile & for now, it is working.
