I have been using gasbuddy app since i got my android phone. Until recently I was able to zoom out on the map view and see all of the gas stations. Now with a recent update the map auto deletes or filters the number of stations visible until you zoom in all the way. Seeing all of the stations when zoomed out was very helpful when traveling and being able to see which stations were going to be in my travel path. Is there a way to undo updates on my phone and go back to a older version or can you PLEASE release a new update that brings back the full functionality of the map so we can see all stations in any zoomed level of the viewable map?

The app has done this since I've been using it, which is apparently 1 year 338 days.

Yes. But it's not the app doing it; it's the server.
scoutmaster is exactly right; the reason all the markers aren't shown is because too many would clutter the map. You wouldn't be able to see the street grid underneath the "marker soup", forcing you to zoom in. And that brings us back to square one...

Considering all the logos on the map, showing more stations would really clutter up the map!

I also noticed, gigawatt73, you have been a member for over four years yet only have less than one weeks worth of points. How about contributing to the site?
