If this is the gas station located at the intersection of South Val Vista Dr and East Warner Road, it's already included in the Master Station List, and a gas price was posted for that station about two hours ago by gillgg, your fellow Gas Buddy member.

Two things:
First, if you want to update the Master Station List (as noted by TxJeans below) you need to be a "senior member", meaning that you have at least 10,000 points on Gas Buddy (something that can be earned in about 10 days with regular price posting, message posting, and reading news articles). Until you have 10,000 points, you can post your request in your local Phoenix discussion category and ask a fellow member to make the Master Station List entry for you; because that member is local to the area, he or she can confirm the information for the gas station you want listed.

Second, you can post gas prices using the Report Gas Prices box on the home page of the website. Simply fill out the information and click the "submit" button. Note that gas prices for the Phoenix area only remain visible for 36 before they're automatically deleted. If a gas price is updated before it's deleted (with either the same price or a new price), the "36 hour visibility clock" starts over. Therefore, the more frequently you update prices for stations, the longer they can be seen by your fellow Gas Buddy members. If the gas station you mentioned in your original post is the same station that gillgg posted for, what happened was no one updated the price before it was automatically deleted and gillgg brought back "visibility" by posting a "new" gas price for the station.

The bottom line is you can post prices using the Report Gas Prices entry box on the website, or you can post prices using one of the mobile apps, but you cannot yet add stations to the Master Station List.

Does that help?

azdldad, welcome to GasBuddy. To add a new station you need 10,000 points. This is a weekend and it might take a while to get the attention of a mod.

You might try posting it in your local forum "Phoenix":

Hopefully someone there will see it and enter the station for you.
