Hi peggygunderson,

Sorry, this is a fairly nondescript suggestion.

If you're referring to the search entry field on the home page, this can only be used to search by a City, State/Province or zip/postal code only.

If you're referring to the site search drop down menus, often smaller metro areas and towns (with 1-2 stations) are not normally included in the drop down lists to prevent clutter. If prices have been reported for station in area that are not included in the lists, you can use the Show Search Options to include 'All Areas' and 'All Stations'.

Address only automatically pop up in a few places on the site, the most popular are when you're trying to add favorite gas stations to a list, or when you're reporting prices.

One way to see if a station exists in our system is to use the Area/Station name options in the favorite station list or price reporting features, after entering the information, if a station name and area match info in the Master Station List database you'll see full station address details prompt out of the Address entry field (sometimes this can be a list).

It sounds to me as though you're asking for more cities to be added to the Area menu used in the Report a Price section. If this is correct, then you should specify which cities are missing. You might want to first post to your local forum, to see if it's really appropriate to add them.

Can you perhaps explain your suggestion a little better? What cities are you talking about? And what, from the way you worded it, would you be doing that you would need to look up the addresses of cities? I, for one, don't understand what that means.

Regarding "It would automatically popup".
What would automatically "popup"? Addresses of cities?
How do you mean they should, or how or where would they pop-up? What would you be doing that they should automatically "popup"?
