Good day
GasBuddy is so fun and rewarding saving myself and others money and time finding good gas prices.
It is really nice you offer the prizes.
Wonder if you consider dividing up the $250 in gas cards so 5 people so there is more winners since there are so many more people now.
Also notify the winners in the notification part on the gas buddy site be helpful.
Any one know why the gas prices are starting to go up again?
To good health, prosperity, love and blessings.

Gas_Buddy; if you look at the op it is a two edged sword, with the statement "Any one know why the gas prices are starting to go up again?"

But I suggest locking this thread.

Add a feature so that you can update your facebook or tweet the prices.

As the discussion seems to have turned from the suggestion of dividing the current prize into smaller but more prizes, and from the suggestion "any one know why the gas prices are starting to go up again?" to people posting gas prices, maybe this topic should be closed.

The suggestions of smaller-sized/more prizes and why prices are starting to go up can always be restarted in new, stand-alone topics if people think the issues are worthy of discussion.

Btw, winner, a subject line of "Suggestion" conveys essentially no information when posted to a forum category whose entire charter revolves around suggestions. For future reference, a better choice might have been "Prizes" (minimal), or "Divide up the prize money" (full sentence).

For previous discussion of a similar idea, Read this thread started 11/18/12 by mxd528 titled: Prizes - split them up, more winners per week (30 messages). Don waded into that thread with a Dec 4, 2012 4:19:37 PM post.

I thought there was a more recent discussion, but I can't seem to find it.

If you try and break up the prizes there will be others complaining that with today's prices $50 is hardly worth it. And, there will be 5 people to contact instead of one, and 5 people that they may need to wait for responses, and more folks that won't show up on the who won list fast enough causing more posts about why hasn't the winner been posted yet.

Notifying the users via the notification might be a good adjunct to the emailing them to the email on record.
