Something to think about...If there was no chance of ever winning a gas card on GasBuddy.com (many people seem to feel that there isn't a chance after years of trying!), would you still enter prices and participate as much as you do? Just to be a member of a site that lists gas prices so that you have access to the cheapest gas in town?

I use the site a lot to find the lowest priced gas. Some weeks I forget to purchase tickets for the gas card drawing.

I probably wouldn't have registered with the site if there was no gas card. I have used the site quite a bit to check gas prices, though.

Apparently, I do still participate despite the fact that I have never won a card and now I have too many points so my chances are pretty much zero.

I'm sort of addicted to doing this, so I guess so

I would post nearly as many prices as I post now. It helps that my local forum is active, and the local members are friendly, which keeps me coming back to the site. We're also competitive. Got to earn those points to increase your rank. ;-)

Probably not so much, but I'd still report and check prices.

When I joined GB there were only quarterly drawings. I still post daily and don't care about the prizes.

Most days, I report prices in excess over and above what receives points. I report what's convenient to me, others report what's convenient to them, and we seem to get about 99% of the area stations covered. I find the news articles interesting, and I like to send messages out into cyberspace. My roommate does Facebook, and I do GasBuddy. We find each other's posting pursuits ridiculous.

Umm yes for the gas prices I think I would, for this forum no way. I don't know that I would do it all the time but every now and then I would enter a price.

Yes but Gas Buddy should give prizes more often
to give us more incentive.

I would definitely participate. I like that I can click on my app and find places with the cheapest gas. I like reporting prices, so others know what is trending and where. The gas card is sort of like playing the lottery...much more likely to be in a car accident than win!

Hmmm, I've been using the GasBuddy Android app for more than a year and it's been handy to have for traveling. I would still post prices, maybe not as much as I do. I think that GasBuddy helps to provide a look at gas prices locally and nationwide.
