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 have a 500 mile round trip route and needed to find the best gas prices along the way, so I did a google search and found gasbuddy. It has saved me quite a bit of money!

I thought there should be a web site that gave current gas prices both locally and nation-wide. I searched for gas prices and found it right away. I don't remember which search engine I used, but probably Google.

I was using the app on my phone but didn't know about the site. I lived in a very rural area before and my choices were limited anyway. now that I'm back in the suburbs (boo) I can be more choosey.

I found GasBuddy when looking for the lowest area prices last year. I remembered several people mentioning GasBuddy and how effective it was in saving time, money, and gas. Besides, I was getting tired of driving around the area looking for the lowest price. Thank God for GasBuddy.
