I have noticed a lot of wrong prices posted in my area lately. I am literally probably following the poster and the price posted is blatantly incorrect. Is there anyway to report this or is it better to just post the correct price and forget about it? Thanks in advance!! Joe

@ Einstein47

As a senior member, you can delete false prices, duplicates, etc. by clicking the price, and setting the new price to 0 (zero). When you do this, ALWAYS leave a quick note as to why it was deleted in the comments field (just delete the existing comment, and input your reason). Only site administrators can see these messages. These notes can help us recognize large volumes of prices being deleted each day as helpful or abusive.

Prices can only be removed from the full website at this time.

Also, please do not bump old, inactive forum topics. If a topic has been dead for two months or more, please do not post in it.

But the issue is when a station doesn't sell diesel, but someone accidentally post a price for diesel. Then everyone with the mobile app just updates that price without realizing that it doesn't exist.

I have not found ANY way to "zero out" the price. There needs to be a way to delete prices for products not sold at a station. I have spent over an hour searching these forums for any advice without luck. This is the closest topic that comes close to answering my question.

Any help please? Anyone...

Thanks scoutmaster and kwzh. I will make notes when I see them posted blatantly wrong since I can't do it within the app itself. As I have noticed them I correct immediately so the members in my area get to see the accurate price in case they are shopping for the cheapest in town. Joe

It's always better to post the correct price but it is never OK to let bad prices go unreported.

You should indeed report it. You can do this by clicking the Inbox icon in the top right corner of this page, and sending a message to Gasbuddy Moderator; or, you can use the Contact Us link, available either under the Help menu, or in a separate link at the bottom of this page.
