I post as we pass the stations, husb is always the "driver" so I can look, unfortunately his eyesight is alot better than mine so sometimes he looks too

I envy those that memorize the prices, I have to post as I see cause my memory isn't what it used to be :-(

I keep a pad and pen in my center console and I list the stations ahead of time, since I usually travel the same route. That way, I only need to enter the prices when I am at a red light, or I pull over for a minute.

If any have changed, I pull in and take a photo of the sign. I'm usually out taking sunset photos almost every evening so I have my camera with me.

Memorize the gas price around my home because I often go by the gas stations and most familiar with their prices.

I update them with my mobile device as I drive by. However, I usually memorize them just for short term until I feel it's safe to use my mobile device...such as at a red light.

I do my "texting while driving" with pencil and paper, my memory isn't good enough to remember them and post them an hour or more later.
I didn't get to vote as I was on vacation and did not post any of the prices arond the areas we were in.
I usually post them at work on my desktop PC, I don't think I have ever posted them via phone, I have researched prices by phone.

I usually stop my car and write down the prices because there are 3 gas stations at this intersection.

I think it's funny that jorjab thinks that it's less distracting to write down the prices than post with a phone while driving. A little hypocritical.

I usually try to remember the price (I only pass one on the way to work). Otherwise, I chuck the phone to my passenger and make him/her post for me.

I usually use either BJ's or Wawa in the Fairless Hills area. Since I am alone in the car, I just memorize the prices and post them when I get home and get to the computer.

Memorize!

Good point "dollarwatcher"! There are a few in my area that do that all the time. There are some that post from all over the state.

So Yes there should be a choice for "I seat home and wait for someone to post than I steal it for mine".

Memorize them as I drive by. Since there are only about 8 I list that''s not hard to do.

When I am driving I only post while at a stop light. In the rare instance I make it through while the light is green then the old memory has to kick in.
