In our area there's a cash price and a credit card price. I noticed a lot of people are posting just the credit card price and not the cash price. Would be nice to keep it consistant and post only cash prices.

car2n4u:

You're making your post in a thread that's talking with the moderators and is seen by a relatively select few active and concerned members across the entire United States and Canada.

If there's price posting discrepancies in your area, you might want to start a thread in your local Flint discussion category and advise local members of the correct price posting policy and reference the instructions from Gas Buddy. In this discussion category you're preaching to the choir; in your local discussion category you're preaching to the offenders and those that can correct your local price posting errors.

Hi car2n4u, welcome to the forum. Yes, in areas where there are dual-priced stations, it's often hard to get all of the price spotters to behave consistently. There's been some brainstorming on possible ways to change the GasBuddy system to make it more likely.

In the meantime, the best course of action is to report it consistently yourself; ideally, when you post a cash price, you should also use the comment field to alert other members that there's a credit surcharge. I like to use "+6c credit", or "+?c credit" if I don't know the amount of the difference.

Did you read FAQ#16 and FAQ#15?

According to FAQ #16 they *are* supposed to be posting the cash price for consistency.
