Happy 14th Anniversary GasBuddy.com and TwinCitiesGasPrices.com. Minnesota and the Twin Cities are real proud of your accomplishments!

It took Jason several weeks before GasBuddy hit the web, which occurred in June, 2000, with the launch of GasBuddy.com. It was first built for tracking prices in Minneapolis and St. Paul, which now has it's own website: TwinCitiesGasPrices.com.

A lot of creative minds and creative entrepreneurs here in Minnesota and the Twin Cities. The list is long of national companies that got there start right here in Minnesota. Way to go Minnesotans!

now the parts of the site don't always load correctly (read news items) and they've taken away the 'one free entry' which was a great draw to the site

Happy Birthday, Gas Buddy. Have been using it for a long time. It is a good way to keep track of what you spend on gas, as well as they calculate your mpg. for you as well. Great job.

Thank you Jason for making this resource available. Without it, I would have no clue as to where the least expensive gasoline is located...it would have been just a crap-shoot.
