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.

only once, and was basically hung up on... justifiable concern, though... we've got a station near here often posted at $2.44, but on my daily cruise-by, would find it at $2.49... was almost going to turn in the station, but one day realized it was a bit of a design flaw in the top of the sign, obliterating the top bar of the "9," and confusing posters who drove by in a hurry...

Never have. Usually find when a price is "Too Good to be True," it usually IS.
