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.

No...

If a lot of folks did this the station would be inundated with phone calls and not have time for their regular tasks. In addition to that they don't know who you are. For all they know you might be a competitor checking their competition.
