Happy 2nd Gasbuddy anniversary to you. Thanks for helping others while you're on the road, and around town. Regards.

A warm and safe holiday wish to you and yours. Best of everything in the new year.

Happy 1st Gasbuddy Anniversary. May you have many more. Just saw your note. Have you communicated with the Gasbuddy people about that? I don't believe there is a way for Gasbuddies to make that type of change. Sounds like a system issue. Best to you in 2013 and beyond.

Anyone know how to change timezones? We are based out of WEST RIVER of SD and CO, but the web page insists that we are on Central Time instead of Mountain.

Welcome back.

Are you normally online, or have easy access to the internet (I'm not trying to be insulting here)? Going to the nearest GasBuddy site (SouthDakotaGasPrices, ColoradoGasPrices, etc.) can be very helpful in understanding how GasBuddy works, and provide much helpful information. If you wish to report gas prices online, then you'll need to log into the closest gas prices web page (RapidCityGasPrices, WyomingGasPrices, DenverGasPrices, etc.) If you have been using your Android device only, then you're only getting a small slice of the big GasBuddy pie. I'll shut up now, and let you be. Best to you, on this day.

Continuing - I lost portions of my Commuter Award percentage (twice) because my iPod Touch had lost its positioning. I was not pleased at all. That's how it works as I understand it, and the Gasbuddy people confirmed the need for the device to be in the near vicinity for Awards % to be applied. It's a safeguard against people making up prices for stations, and corrupting the integrity of the program. I get it. I'm not happy I lost some percentages, but I get it. Does that help?

by DrivingtoMars  Nov 16, 2012

I love Taco Johns and Star Trek also! Your question has an unpleasant answer, but I'll explain it. The reason TX and NM aren't being credited to your Awards is because your Android device isn't there. Both the Android and iOS devices use Cell tower or GPS triangulation to approximate your device's position. It is used to verify that you are indeed near the stations you are reporting on. Without that verification, your efforts are unfortunately wasted. Continued.

Yes, GasBuddy is the umbrella organization over all the gas price sites in the U.S. and Canada. All states and most major cities have their own gas price webpage. Wished I had thought of it. The full experience includes the online webpages, and that's where you can be social, get points from reading articles, and get points for posting in the vast number of Forums. It's crazy, and wish more now that I had thought of it! I had the whole thing to start with, since Cell phones weren't as smart as they are now. It was all web based. But now, the trend has completely shifted towards the mobile environment. Have you started collecting awards? I got an iPod Touch and have been crawling up the Awards levels. Very addictive when another level is achieved, Wish I would of thought of that one also. It must sound like I just don't think much. I'm too busy trying to get more prices so I can get more Award levels! It's sick (in a freak kind of way)! Making your trip gives you a huge opportunity to r
