When you load up the gasbuddy app and find the nearest station. Sometimes you see that only one or two prices have been reported. Like me do you sometimes pull into the station just to make sure you can report all grades and their prices???

If I'm by myself I usually pull into the station, sometimes close enough to read the pump prices. No, if I have someone riding shotgun and recording fuel prices for me from the signage.

No I gave up on pulling into the station because it takes more gas to stop and report the prices. I realize that they've attached GPS to the phone app so that you can get additional credits on there but it's not worth the pausing at each station to post the prices. However if I'm at that station buying fuel then I post all the prices.

Yes I do at times but if I can memorize how the station's pricing sequence goes I just post the price.

I do, I live/travel off the beaten path and most of the stations gouge you on price, so I feel like I'm giving it back by reporting them.

No. I post if I am stopped in traffic at a red light (thru the app) and when I am stopped at the station filling.

If I'm by myself I pull into the station to find a safe stopping spot to record prices. Sometimes I'm close enough to the pumps to read the prices on the pump. When I have someone riding shotgun & recording prices we generally take the prices from the signage.
