Maybe it's so that you'll report prices at two different sets of stations. :-)

It depends on where you are going. I just mapped used the calculator to map a trip to Lancaster, PA and it used the same route both ways.

That's a GREAT feature. Completely different routes coming and going would make for less boring trips!

Turn restrictions, one way roads, and traffic conditions.

BTW, GasBuddy uses Google's routing engine and has no control over the directions.
