Thanks for all the comments. I did not see the 750 point limit. That explains it.

Looks as if Loulou is post and run person. No further communication from him since this post.

When I first started, I thought the points were awarded for 5 gas stations, but it is just for 5 prices. Some gas stations have 4 prices, so that would be 600 points.

You have been a Gas Buddy member for three days; during that time you've "earned" 3,645 points, including 100 points for joining.

Assuming that each day you've posted five gas prices, read five news articles, taken part in the weekly poll, and (almost) posted five message posts, and referred members to the website, you'd have maxed out your daily points.

As you receive points only for the first five gas station price posts, all other gas price posts you make are for the benefit of your fellow Dayton Gas Buddy members. You can post all the gas prices you want, but you receive points for only the first five price posts.

Does that (and the earlier posts) answer your question?

You are limited to 750 points per day for reporting prices. As CelticHeart stated, maybe you reached your limit.
