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 started using GasBuddy because my friend was using it one day and she told me how it helps you find the cheapest gas and those prices go up that's a big thing in our lives

I did a search for gas prices, and this was one of the links. I only missed a couple of days at the very start.

I saw a local TV news article on gas prices and the newscaster mentioned GasBuddy as his source for price information.

Was planning a trip to Alaska and found a link on one of the RV sites in Anchorage. Had been talking with the loving bride on our trip to Colorado this last summer I wished there was some way to research fuel availability and price while on the road. The Dodge Cummins while getting fairly good mileage while carrying the camper still burns a bunch of it and saving a few cents per gallon makes a difference with the aftermarket 60 gallon fuel tank.

according to my member stats, I joined in 2005 - seems like there was some big hullabaloo over the prices of gas and there was a discussion in the newspaper (The Wichita Eagle) about the GasBuddy.com website. Since then, I have seen other mentions, and I got the iPhone app as soon as it came out.

Dear Miniana, welcome to the family. The questions with yes and nos well as other things in the forums are for fun and also providing a venue for you to get more points. A lot of people like to have a simple forum with a yes or no answer so that they can get their 20 points really fast. There are other forum discussions that you can spend hours reading and discussing things with other Gasbuddy friends. You have the choice of what you like to participate in and get your points. :-)

in short, read a story quoting gasbuddy in a local weekly, one day thought I would use it to find gas prices in a destination, to see whether I should fill up before leaving or wait... waited, saved like 50 cents a gallon in the same state, and it wasn't a reservation... anyway, signed up, slowing learning the ropes... pet peeve: too many yes-and-no answers to debatable questions...

I was never aware of gas buddy until prices started dropping and my manager started talking of gas buddy. I was very confused and gave her a look. She explained to me that you make people aware of gas prices. My boss later had me report a gas price and helped me make a name. I love it !
