Winnipeg Gas Prices now gives me Alabama stations, and searching for any other area gives me prices with no names. Trying to enter prices manually gives me boxes with .9, which Canadian sites do NOT have.
It also took 5 minutes to get logged in, and I had to search with Yahoo to get the site. It was fine earlier in the evening.
And no, I do NOT have a virus, trojan, or other malware doing this, and it is not my caches/cookies.
I expect, since it was 10 minutes to the date rollover, that it will be cleared up in a while, and I will have to make my price posts from the next time zone.

I was getting a 403 Forbidden error from about 8 PM MST last night until about Noon MST today.

Anyone else?

LOL!
Actually, it is really only 1 cousin in Alabama, she is actually Canadian born, but has lived in Alabama for most of her life, went to college there, married, moved to the backwoods, I have seen her only once since the 1960s.

Went to a gasbuddygasprices .com really.
And to rumbleseat, its your cousin from rural Alabama, or your aunt or your grandfather's wife's sister or heck its rural Alabama they may all be the same person.

I have a cousin in Alabama. Now I know, it is all her fault!
She is way off in rural Alabama, only one bank in the area, poor internet service, slow mail, now I see it was her plot to bring the world to her level! LOL!
But, like I said, I am glad it is back to normal. I have experienced temporary site problems before, although not many lately, but having the page locked on Alabama, even with it said "winnipeggasprices.com" in the address bar, was just plain weird.

Didn't you hear? Alabama annexed Winnepeg. I think it had something to do with the end of the NHL lockout. ;)

OK, but seriously. There are issues. Like just now, I had to reload this page 3 times before I could get it to take the 'post a reply' link. On the other hand, given the number of interconnected sites that GasBuddy has, it's pretty impressive that it works at all. At least to me.

You logged in 4 hours later, of course it was fine. It was fine last night, it is fine this morning, but it wasn't at the time.
These things are temporary, but they shouldn't happen.
It is just plain weird that Manitoba, Edmonton, and Vancouver were all fine at the same time the Winnipeg site was locked on Alabama.

I got a server error message last night in Mississippi around 11pm. Did anyone else have issues?

The Chicago site was down for a bit last night. I am guessing upgrade or maintainence on some servers. All was back to normal after about 30 minutes.

Last night Vancouver was slow and said no prices reported when finally loaded.

Strangely, I just logged into Edmonton, and it is fine, go back to Winnipeg, and it is still locked on Alabama.
