CNN this morning was reporting about the soaring gas prices, then ended with putting GassBuddy.com on the screen for the people to go to for finding best prices. There have been numerous articles in the media with the mention of this site. So, how did you find GasBuddy?

Just recently heard about it from a friend. Can't believe it's been around 10 years and I just found out.

Found through Yahoo search for local gas price comparisons to surrounding counties. As suspected, poor demographic county where I live is paying more than all surrounding counties with a more affluent demographic. Thanks for the clarity. Now off to county legislature to complain. :) Love the site!

I was curious to see what stations had the cheapest prices by me, and this was the first link that popped up.

So many are finding this site through search for better pricing. But, why Gasbuddy, when there are so many others who are now mimicking Gasbuddy?!?
