do you ever suspect others of copying gas prices off the site to get their points?

Yes, I do, but sometimes the pumps and the marquee do not match. Some folks see a posted regular price and assume the higher grades. Recently the price distribution has been changing so that is not as accurate. Some stations still mark up mid-grade 10 cents and another 10 cents for premium/super. Many have gone to 15 cent increments and I have even seen 12 cent increments. However there are others out there that are asymmetric and mark up mid-grade say 8 cents and premium say an additional 20 or 30 cents.

No longer can we assume a 10 cent increment for all stations for each grade increase. I know in Iowa that mid-grade ("plus") used to be less than regular because of ethanol subsidies. I'm not sure if that is still the case.

I do, but I don't post unless I see the price. Is there a penalty for being wrong?

I see every price I post, but notice that a few others are not.. Being a retailer myself I have found the prices at my own business entered wrong, most likely by somebody just gaining points.
