Need additional colors, such as:

GREEN - first 10 lowest & closest stations

ORANGE - favorite stations

PURPLE - cash/member only prices

That is correct. Good or bad makes no difference, because someone would have to set themselves up as judge in order to make that determination and only an arrogant, pompous know-it-all gasbag would be willing to do that, and nobody at GasBuddy fits that description (I'm assuming). No, the reason I am asking for more details is as kwzh suggests, namely to determine the nature of the suggestion.

Well kwzh, that has never been the way stuff was added to the list in the past! I think CK once posted a suggestion, good or bad, is still a suggestion.

scoutmaster, CK is asking for a clarification in order to know where to list it. I expect that once the ambiguities have been ironed out, it will be indexed accordingly.

I understand the suggestion but I don't think the cost and time to implement this would offset the benefit. And I'm shocked CK is not adding this to his wiki! It's a suggestion! Quality never mattered before!

sirald66: Could you please clarify which map (app or full site)? The "closest" implies that GB knows where you are, so that ould mean the app map. Yet, "favorite stations" seems to imply the MGP map of the full site (at least from the prospective of an iPhone user).

Now "cash" is a different matter, because ALL prices should be cash prices. If "member only prices" use the same color as cash, that would be confusing, because, say, Costco, is member only, but they don't take cash. Please clarify that one, too.

Where?
And, why?

What would be the benefit to this suggestion?
And is there a reason Gas Buddy should use those specific colors?
