Maybe gbo/opis should launch a subscription service in hopes of generating enough revenue to pay for the sites free gas card drawing, operational needs, and such. Eliminate the ads and the point system entirely! Pay real $$dollars$$to be a dedicated member that so many claim to be. I myself prefer the free site that it remains to be to this day. Just a thought.

I agree with you about GB & just being money hungry but NOT far to those of us that do not have a smartphone! I will leave soon if things don't change! It should be fair to all & NOT about GB making more money!

Thank you for the compliment and hate to see you go away from here..... Johnny O

Have to agree with tonyspin 100%. Don't sweat the small stuff...and it's all small stuff. Especially a ranking on a gas prices website. Don't lose sight of the greater good of helping others find cheap gas prices by posting PRICES. Having been stuck between #70-#84 for 10 years, I can tell you that worrying about a ranking is damn silly. Maybe 3,000,000 points ago it was a fun diversion, but really who cares. Hope you see the light and continue posting prices.

Hello, I received your post on my Whiteboard and I am sorry you feel this way. People watching the videos are just using what is available to them, just like you. I use this site to find the best gas prices, and post low prices I see for others. I fail to see why a number on a list is important to you, but obviously it is. I am truly sorry you feel this way, and I hope you can find happiness in your life again. Best regards, Tony

Hi VanKY. I agree wholeheartedly with you about the "New Bonus Points". Ever since GasBuddy was sold it seems like they are doing everything to make more money for themselves. I wonder how much they get everytime somebody views a commercial video. I don't have a smart phone either. I'm surprised that you are being passed way up there with 3.5 million points and your rank in the 700s. I'm down at #1776 and over a month away from 3 million points. I assumed that most of the beneficiaries of the new 1,000 points would be 'newbies' down under 1 million. Life is not fair on GB anymore and they are draining the fun out of it. Lets stick together for a while longer. Warren

Let the flames begin... this really is kind of a mean site at times. Shocking what you read in many 'news article' threads. Liberals and conservatives openly savaging each other in public forums. So unseemly. I really would have preferred a more mellow ambience...

...smart phone just to stay ahead on GB. My antique model works just fine for me. In any case, I would never buy an Apple product. Apparently that's what one now needs to compete. Enjoy your points, buddy, but you didn't come by all of them fair and square. I've wasted an amazing amount of time on this site. What's happened here is a real slap in the face. I'll be finding better ways of using all those hours.

Open letter to certain Gas Buddies near the top: You are one of 10 members who passed me in a short 4 day period, week of Mon, Mar 16, 2015. This despite my posting daily for max points. You obviously used the smartphone cheat to obtain your present standing. You know what your points and standing are really worth now. Saddens me to see someone so desperate for points that they'd sell themselves so cheap to get ahead. I think GB management has lost it, frankly. Right- lets sow bitterness and discord on Gas Buddy. The 'app' is so unfair it apparently even discriminates against Blackberry owners, so I hear. I want you to know you share in the responsibility for my decision to stop posting gas prices and posting for points. It's become- ahhh, pointless, eh? I worked so hard to achieve my 781 national standing. Progress is slow in a seniority system. Took me months and months to move just a few points, only to see 10 points wiped out virtually overnight. I will not buy a stupid smart phone

Yes, I noticed some members have moved past me and two of those members have revealed the app as the reason. I have not taken it to heart due to the lack of a personal smart phone. I still enjoy posting prices and commenting on articles.
