instead of riding , wasting more gas that you are consuming wouldn't you rather get on this wonderful website and find the cheapest gas prices near you ...

Never. I'm lucky to live pretty close to some of the cheapest gas in the area. There is another area that typically has stations that match those close to my home or even 1-5 cents cheaper, but it's easily 20 miles away, and never worth the drive.

No. It's not worth the gasoline to drive around for that, and it's not worth the time either.

In days gone by until I found this site. I can pretty much now tell gas prices with a high degree of accuracy.

This site is awesome and I'm sure there are others just like it

Not really, I don't want to drive extra 1-2 miles to look for some cheap gas (unless it saves more than 10 cents/gallon)

Before GasBuddy, I would always try to find what he patterns were in a given area shortly after a move in the course of driving around looking for other things, trying out alternative commuter routes, etc., usually over the span of a few months. Now, I let my browser/app do the price hunting for me.

Since I watch prices all day as I drive 50-75 miles daily, I don't need to ride around looking for cheap gas, I already know where it is and plan accordingly.

Haven't done that recently. I might if I were in a new city and looking for a motel. I might keep an eye for gas prices a little.

I don't drive around looking for the cheapest gas. However, I do make sure that the station I fill up at is within 5-10 cents of the lowest. 5 cents on 25 gallons is $1.25 Not worth the money spent driving around.

If I happen to drive by a gas station with a cheap price, I'll fill up. Around here I already know who is cheaper and who is not.

No. Not with this website available! What baffles me is that there is a gas station near my house that is regularly the most expensive in town and just 1.5 miles down the road is a station that today is .45 cents a gallon cheaper but the high priced station is full of cars. People complain about gas prices but dont seem pay attention to being able to get it cheaper easily.
