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

Sometimes I wonder if prices get posted as bait because by the time I get there they are always radically different. Either that or the local dealers are footballing diesel hourly.

I am certain that there is a GB in town copying prices from other stations, or using prices from the site to update en masse using a PC and browser. Most of the time, I am at the pumps when I update prices, and only post marquee prices if I'm running behind to work, for example.

I regularly post two stations that are close and on my usual route. They are about 1/2 mile apart. I drive through the first station and mentally note the prices on the pump and then pull into the second station and enter both stations in my mobile app.

Yes, I usually use the app on my phone when I get to where I'm going so as to post prices in a timely fashion safely.

Sometimes once, I did see the price posted at 3.25 but when I got there it was really 3.06 that a pretty big price difference if you saw it. Obviously they were trying to get gas point rather then putting right prices. If you can take time to pump the gas you surely have enough time to put the right prices for others to see.
