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 friend told me about it but I never started using it regularly until I got a diesel car where the price variance within town can be insane, often a spread of greater than .50 cents.

I have known about Gas Buddy for years. I only recently learned that if I signed up and made a profile, I can win free gas and prizes. Now I am inviting my FB friends by e mail and telling them to mention my profile name when they join.

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.
