or Charlie's Automotive and Repair at Stroop and South Dixie in the Kettering/Moraine area-price $3.71 at 4:30 PM

or Pilot's Gas on I-75 near Middletown, OH-price $3.68 at 4:00 PM

Also, if you are able to use one of the mobile apps, the "find gas near me" search makes it easy to find nearby stations to update prices.

This is also available on the mobile website, m.gasbuddy.com which also works on PC's and laptops.

Appreciate the comments. Hard to discern what area needs to be entered at times, i.e. Fairfield vs. West Chester. Map suggestion sounds like a good way to resolve the problem.

I'm not sure why Loulou isn't finding the stations, but I do know that the first one mentioned, Dixie Deli on Rt. 4, is in the system (it's in Fairfield, OH, not West Chester).

Louloulou2013:
First, read Scrapheap's posting suggestion below.

Second, if saying that the statons aren't showing up on your home page of the website, it's likely because no one has updated prices recently. Stations (i.e., price listings) are removed at regular intervals (12, 24, 36, 48, etc. hours after the price has last been posted or updated).

If a station isn't on the home page (or searched) list, then you have to enter the station as if it were a new entry.
Alternatively, you can make those stations your "favorites" and can post prices from your favorites list, even if they've not been recently posted or updated.

If you want to the add the stations to the Master Station List, you must be a "senior" Gas Buddy member, defined as one with 10,000 or more points. At that level, you can add stations to the list (or edit/update stations already listed).

Does this (and the previous responses) answer your question?

The Charlie's is in the MSL as a Marathon. I'm not sure how the others may be listed. I suggest you go to the Gas Price Maps, zoom into the area until you see price balloons, go to the lower left hand corner of the map and change the time from 48 hours to Show All Stations, then see if your stations are on the map. You can then click on those price balloons to report the prices.

You can't list new stations until you get your first GB car.
