While adding diesel prices, I keep getting the annoying app message "That Seems High." When I look at high and low prices in the state, mine are always in the middle. Example today for state low prices. 3.48 - 3.69 and high prices are 4.05 - 4.19. Yet diesel fuel in my area has unchanged for the past 3 months and hovers anywhere from 3.67 - 3.99 which is clearly in the middle.

Why such an annoying app feature if doesn't have more leeway than that?

I too have been getting a lot of "that seems high" messages when posting diesel, even if the price is low for the area or lower than the last time it was reported at that station! The only time it doesn't show up is when I just copy the previous price if it hasn't changed.

That happens alot to me too. Your station might be the first in the area to gain or increase prices.

How annoying! You know that the app is calling you a liar, right? That has to be maddening to have your veracity challened in such a way. But, what can you do?

I also get "That seems Low" or it just won't go through at all cuz it thinks it is way too low or something.... Yet I am standing right at the Gas Station & the price is most def. legit.

Happens to me all the time, even for the difference of just Regular 87 vs. Mid 89.

Same happened to me this morning, the price dropped from 4.19 to 4.09. I got the message " the price looks high" . Funny that I was posting a lower price then what was listed in the app.

I also get that notice and it makes me double check the price I am posting helping me to make sure I didn't fat finger it.

I get the "that seems low" when pricing gas. Nothing is low about gas prices.
