Anyone else crazy like me and actually call the gas station beforehand to verify the low price on Gasbuddy is "real"? Sometimes, when I spot a station with a relatively low price and drive out of the way to go there, I find the price isn't what Gasbuddy reported.. or they're out of gas.. or there are special perks to getting that price (i.e. cash only, must buy a car wash, etc.) This ends up costing more gas to travel to the particular station.

Before Gas Buddy I tried calling and here in Texas they would not give out that information - said they worried I might be one of their competitors. Gas Buddy has a very high accuracy rate in my experience - i do not remember being disappointed at home or on the road.

No, and they probably wouldn't tell me if I did call. I could be a competitor checking prices.
