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 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.

Yes, if I'm by myself. Maryland now has a law in effect against using hand held devices while driving. No, if I have someone riding shotgun who can enter the prices as we drive past.

Drive by and enter when I get to my destination is a short trip..
Been known to use a digital recorder to record prices for entering later.

I report the prices that are listed on my tank when fueling. Otherwise, I jot down the prices on the station sign when I drive by.

I work at a gas station so I have to check all grades of the few gas stations nearest my store. But if Regular hasn't changed than the rest usually doesn't either. So I watch the board til regular chances than swing in to look at the others.

I only report two stations regularly.
I usually use the prices on the sign but I pull in to the pumps and audit all the grades at least once or more a week.
