I don't know if this has ever been mentioned so bear with me. I see when customers update gas prices on a daily basis, but is there some way to inform customers when gas stations are not selling gas due to work being done on their gas lines.

Currently, Handy Mart at 4340 US-70E & NC-111 is not selling any gas except for Diesel because they are having work done on their pumps and will be ongoing roughly until June 14th. However, the store is still open for inside sales.....Rick

That's a good idea, but anyone that deletes grades/fuels is undertaking the responsibility to monitor the situation and put them back when the station returns to normal. Not having the MSL connect to the rest of site prevents most members from realizing there is something special going on.

You could leave a message on the whitboard of the person who is reporting these prices and ask him to stop until they sell gasoline again.

You could change the MSL entry by unchecking the boxes for the grades of gasoline not being sold. This will prevent app users from finding it as a station near them, unless they are searching for diesel.

Ah. Missed that!

Then only post diesel prices with a note in the comments. If there are any other prices posted, they should be deleted.

Scoutmaster:
The station is nt temporarily closed; it still open and is currently only selling diesel. It's no more closed than Costco or BJ's is closed because they o my sell regular and premium.

Change the station in the MSL to temporarily closed and list details in the comments section.
