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?

I found GB by accident while wandering around the internet. Use it a lot for travel with motorhome. I know where I'm going to gas up 2 or more days ahead thanks to GB. Also use google maps street view to look at gas station for entrance/exit and overhang situations.

We all try to help by reporting prices.... some times the prices change faster than they could be reported! I reported a price today and half an hour later passing by the same Gas Station, the price was up 14 cents!!!

I thought there should be some place that reported gas prices, so I googled it, and there it was: GasBuddy.com. I go to the site most days. I use it to plan trips as well as checking local gas prices.

SoftBall
The No. 9/8 Georgia softball evened the series with the Missouri Tigers with a 6-4 win at a sun-splashed Jack Turner Stadium on Saturday, April 4 in Athens, Ga. With the win, Georgia improves to 30-10 on the season and 7-7 in Southeastern Conference play. Missouri falls to 24-8 overall and 6-5 in league action. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Bulldogs.

Before, we looked up different links to find the best gas prices. Then, a friend suggested I check the gasbuddy.com link. I really liked it. So, I was hooked. :)

I saw that people were getting more than the 1000 points for posting gas prices, and I wanted to know how. So I visited the website...and found out why.
