I vote on Save On Gas since GasBuddy not only posts gas prices in the surrounding neighborhood, but has the $100 gift card daily drawing (and on rare occasions, even someone from Maine might win), but GasBuddy also has a forum where people participate and give ideas on various ways to save on gas consumption/usage.

Clean air filters, check fuel jets, air-intake valves, onboard computers -- These are all general maintenance, but if you keep your vehicle in good running order, you'll consume less gas. If you're like me and use diesel for heat, keeping the furnace tuned up and even if you don't think you need a new air filter, put one in anyway once a year. It'll keep things running smoother and prolong the life of your furnace. And, yes, even save on fuel consumption. Even with the wind chill sitting at -40, -50 and down to -80 degrees, my furnace uses just under 1 gallon per day on average.

I appreciate GasBuddy members posting least expensive places near me to get diesel fuel, too. Thank you, everyone, for being here!

Since cheap gas is a thing of the past, I'd say:

"Inform yourself and others about current gas prices."

Once you have the knowledge, you'll know how to get the best bang for your buck.

"Help fight high gas prices." It always makes me hunt for lower priced gas when I see what others are seeing as prices for fuel in the greater Wichita metro area. I like to get the best price possible, though that is not always possible. IF I know I am only going 2-4 miles, like to the grocery store, I won't go but a mile or two further. However, I have a gas station where I can redeem points, thus getting at least $0.10 up to $0.30 off of each gallon of gas. I'd be nuts to go any further.

I'm of the thought that there is no such thing as cheep gas, l tend to agree with others that the word "cheep" has a negative vibe to it,especially a commidity sold on the global market.What would you think of a mid- evil knight on horseback in a full suit of armor ,saying fuel price slayer.

There is no such thing as "cheap" gas. It's just that some costs less at some stations than others. I remember 25 cent a gallon gas prices and never thought, "gee, this is really cheap gas". It would be today. However, in 1965 that was the going price. I remember places that sold it for a lot more. But I never thought of 25 cent a gallon gas as cheap. It's all a matter of perspective.

"Real People, Real Prices, Real Savings."
^ Makes sense to me because it's real drivers, reporting real prices, causing savings since the prices are available for comparison.

"Real Buddies, Low Prices"
^ Buddies are the people listing the prices and buddies usually let you know what's best for you. :)

I have to admit the " Save Cash On Gas " has a nice ring to it as well though.

cheap does not necessarily equate with saving money. Location and quality are also considerations.

As a kid in the 50's, I remember the gas wars, and everybody knew where it was happening by word of mouth. It was all about "Where to get gas for the lowest price", How about "Lowest gas prices in town"?

After reading posts, I see that people are under the notion that GasBuddy is looking for a name change. I, on the other hand, understand you are looking for a catchy slogan and not a name change.

A slogan is a memorable motto or phrase used in a political, commercial, religious, and other context as a repetitive expression of an idea or purpose.

Correct me if I’m wrong.

Any slogan isn't going to help recruit more price spotters. You need to reward people for their efforts. It's what everyone needs to motivate them. Let them use the now worthless points to make purchases from a catalog/website to get things people want/need. Deduct points or days they can post from people who enter incorrect information. Incorrect information can be reported by other GasBuddy users if you provide such a button for users to click on.

I could go on, but I won't.

"Find cheap gas" does not work for me. Cheap gas has a negative connotation in that cheap can be lesser quality. Also, I refuse to call a commodity item that sells for such a high price, cheap, unless it goes under $2.00 per gallon.

"Help fight high gas prices" is really not realistic. gasbuddy.com does not, in my opinion influence gas prices, it simply directs others to what station is selling gas at what prices. When gas prices in a given area are all relatively the same, I don't think that is being influenced by gasbuddy.

"Save $$$ on your gas" and "Save on gas" both are in line with what I perceive is the purpose of gasbuddy.com; informing those who wish to know to what a given station is charging for gas at a given time.

Save yo' dough fer th' ho, don't spend it fer the go! Rapper option
But your choice of Save$$$ on gas now might not piss off people as much as my suggestions above.

I like the suggestion and comments made by elaine3085. If it is going to change, I think you'd get more response and involvement from Save $$$ on your gas. If you use Help fight high gas prices, it puts everything into a situation where some people might think that WE have the ability to fight high gas prices when what we are doing is reporting prices for consumers to check on the lower prices in whatever area that they are. I also think that it would have a political undertone where some would think that Gas Buddy has connections with lobbyists or political affiliations to promise to make changes on high gas prices.
