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.

No because I pass the same stations almost on a daily basis that I post for.

No. But I did pass an exit yesterday because the GB reporter was 15 cents higher than the actual price at the station on the exit.

No. Mostly signs outside of gas stations. Or when I gas up. What I don't like is when a price is advertised on sign board and when I pull in to fill up it is for 85 octane which I never use also my vehicle does not recommend 85 octane.
