I became a gas buddy friend to post gas prices in the rural area to help fellow friends in a rural area. Live in Jasper, TN. Also looking for the best prices when i travel for enjoyment on weekends to other areas over 100 miles away.

Initially to save on fuel and plan where I'm going to fill up. But now more and more I like to report prices for others to voice where cheaper fuel is, I also hope that it keep stations competitive.

I post prices because anytime that I go to get gas I check the site to get the least expensive price, as a result I have to contribute so others can also have current prices when they need it.

Since I travel a lot I need to know where the nearest gas station is if I need to gas up. It is also great to know where the cheapest gas is sold. Also it is fun to gain points and have a chance to win free gas.

To earn points, cash them in for a chance to win a GAS card. Cause I can. Cause I don't care about what is reported, cause I get cool awards. Talk smack on the forum. To check out the cool profile pictures. See how people are fake by hiding behind some fact that they are the only one whom report correct prices, when they don't. Pretend like what I report really matters and how it impacts my life. See who really sticks with it everyday. To see who is really telling the truth about reporting gas prices on the forum. If you have to type it, then you might not be that honest with yourself. Hopefully, meet a new girl. I got nothing better to with my time. Lastly, cause I can be a Top Spotter and have five spotters equal the same number of days reported, then who will miss that one day, which drops them to 29 days.

Be truthful and kind to others on the road.

I was just looking up gas prices, and found this site. Loved it the idea is we all need a little help at the gas pump, plus I could use the gas card. The idea is we are all helping each other, leaves you feeling a little nicer.
