Here is the all important question - Does it really matter?

Why not just correct it to read "Enter Drawing" It's on the home page and the actual entry page after selecting how many tickets you want to enter with. Seems obvious to me to fix it. Why have incorrect grammar on the site on purpose?

Is this like the page title that everyone was up in arms about?

I agree - it is a non-issue. I've looked at the button many times and knew what it was for and never worried about the "wording" of the button label. The intent is clear.

So the suggestion is that Gas Buddy should change the wording?
Or is the suggestion something else?

It is on the Home page under the "Prize Give-Away!" banner.

Because of the size restriction of the "button" the words on the label are shortened to read "Enter Draw". It is a non issue.

cupboy, what you do with your grammar is between you and your grammar, and in this world of political correctness, who are we to judge what is odd.
