CNN this morning was reporting about the soaring gas prices, then ended with putting GassBuddy.com on the screen for the people to go to for finding best prices. There have been numerous articles in the media with the mention of this site. So, how did you find GasBuddy?

A co-worker was using GasBuddy app on his phone to monitor a price war in our city, so I looked you up online. I prefer the website over the app: I don't have a smartphone. I am happy that I don't have to have a computer in my pocket in order to use the features!

I remember when the response was mostly "Yahoo" and then came Google, and now is mostly through the use of the Apps!! What would it be in the future?!?

Don't remember now. I joined in 2011. But I think I just somehow ran across it on the web, possibly thru an advertisement on another page.

I've been using GasBuddy for YEARS since 2008 when I lived in DC. I just finally decided that I wanted to transition from consumer to contributor since GB has been so vital in helping me keep my car costs down.

Hey, this is fun! Found you guys again thanks to a general e-mail regarding a contest. It's nice to be back. I'm not driving quite as much (or as far anymore), but have not lost my F1 driver's reflexes, thanks to the "interesting" traffic around town.

Found GasBuddy.com through an ad on another Message Board.

LilRedWagonIN, it's now on the ride side of the screen on the Home page, but much smaller.

My brother told me he always checked your site for the lowest gas prices whenever he drove up to see me, so I finally checked it out.
