In case of a double post to the forum, edit the second one and replace the text with ".", or if you prefer a less laconic marker, something like "[dup post]".

You post what twice?

You post the price for one gas station twice?
If you're posting for the same station (and updating a currently listed station), it doesn't matter; your most recent post is what's listed. (It's overwritten the earlier post).

If you're posting prices two times for the same station (but the station's identification is different in the two listings), you can either leave it and it will expire in a matter of hours (depending on the Gas Buddy area), or you can zero out the prices for one or both of the stations.

If you're talking about posting twice in the message forums, while you can edit one (within the time limit), you cannot remove your post; you'd have to request the moderators remove your post.

Does this answer your question or are you talking about something else?
