About two days ago I started having trouble entering a price for a certain gas station. I enter the price but the number doesn't stick. If I enter it on my phone I get a prompt telling me it seems low, but it's about the same price as the other stations in the area (3.29). If I enter it on the Web, the price just doesn't stick in the regular field but it seems to stick in the mid-grade and premium fields.

Any ideas?

The station is the Shell station at 17th and Summit St.

Okay, done. I even included a map link directly to the station in question this time. Let's see if I get a response.

Send another notification, this time using "incorrect prices" as the subject.

Day 4. Still can't enter the correct price for this station. Have heard nothing from the mods yet.

Still having trouble with this station today. The price shows up in my phone but not on the main website, and still getting the prompt that $3.29 seems too low.

Yep I tried it on the full site. You can test it by entering 3.29 for regular at 8:15 AM this morning. Maybe if two different people try it, then it will take.

You're using the mobile app, right? Have you tried the full site?

If that's the Shell listed in the ML as "1866 Summit St & 17th Ave", I have it in my OSU fsl. The posting history shows a blank for regular, but has 3.41 for midgrade and 3.54 for premium, both posted by ned23 "2 hours ago."

I didn't spot the station, so I won't post the price even as a test lest someone turn me in!

I just did another test. It will let me enter $3.39 but not $3.29. If I enter $3.29 it zeroes out the price. $3.29 is the correct price that was posted on the sign. The Mid and Prem prices seem to be okay.

Okay. Sent a message under "Web Site Errors".

It's a little frustrating since the station finally has competitive prices in the last week which has been a little rare, but it's not even showing up in the main searches.

It's always been a weird station, usually they're about 20 cents Above average, except when there's a gas spike, and a lot of times they're a day behind in catching up to the spike and you can save 10 cents if you get their quickly.

They also don't seem to have enough numbers for their sign and they face the missing numbers towards the oncoming traffic (Summit is one-way). So, you might see $3.29, $3.4_ , $3._4 and you kind of have to guess $3.42 and $3.54 (usually they space grades in 11-13 cent increments and you have to back calculate)

Makes the commute interesting. LOL.
