The map for gas prices will not come up. I used to press Maps on the home page and it would bring me to a page that let me put in my zip and it showed me all the prices in the area. Now that page has a picture of Florida with the different heat zones. Is this a glitch?

Please report any MGP map deficiencies or requests for improvements to it in this topic.

" Still Lots of work to get this even close to the 'old' maps "

Agreed, but its better than the heat maps. Someone needs to learn how to present a div layer when 'Report Prices' or 'View Details' is selected.

Maps are 'somewhat' back...

This Still Doesn't Work

www.iowastategasprices.com/map_gas_prices.aspx
This is the 'new' working link

Still can't update prices on the map. And the Date/Time Shown is rounded by the Hour, even though you can report prices by the Minute... Still Lots of work to get this even close to the 'old' maps (It is something to look at now, but not very useful!)

If you see this again, please note the URL in the browser's address window, e.g. http://tampagasprices.com/Price_By_County.aspx. Also, if there is a zoom control on the map, what notch is the zoom set to when you first see the map?

Working just fine now. Maybe it just didn't like me yesterday. I was on my PC. Thank you for the help!

Hi Cherrylynn,

Assuming you are talking Home Page on the FULL website..
I pressed the map and it brings up the entire US map and at the top is the field to enter the ZIP.

I am using FireFox at the full website.

USA National Gas Price Heat Map with Search by City, State OR Zip:

Is this not working, or are you talking about the APP? If the APP, what platform, if the full website, which OS and Browser?

To better assist the moderators in understanding the problem, are you trying to access the maps from a desktop or laptop computer or via a browser on a mobile device? What operating system are you using? And, to differentiate between a glitch and an isolated problem, has this happened before?

Also, have you tried exiting the program and/or restarting the device on which you're accessing Gas Buddy?

The more information you can provide the moderators the easier it is to try to isolate the problem.
