    When driving for hours, sometimes even days, it’s easy to forget to fill up the tank until the red light starts blinking. It’s easy to locate the nearest gas station and check prices, which is especially useful for saving money during summer when prices are much higher.

    You're not getting anywhere if your gas tank is empty. If your summer road trip takes you far, you are likely to have to fill up. To avoid wasting 100's of dollars on overpriced fuel, you can use GasBuddy to find the most affordable gas stations in the area.

    Even if you’ve kept your old car in tip-top shape and running at 40mpg, there is nothing worse than being out of gas and not knowing where you can refuel your car. You can easily locate nearby gas stations and compare prices so you can fill up your tank when you need to.

    Dropping 50 bucks on gas is the worst! I use gas buddy all of the time to avoid overpriced gas stations and keep my trips from going over budget. It's also great for finding clean restrooms!

    It can get quite frustrating when you've just tanked up your vehicle only to realize that a gas station across the street has gas for 15 cents less per gallon. But you can now save up to $340 per week on average by locating the cheapest gas stations nearby.

    Maintaining your car can get expensive, the best way to keep costs down is to take preventative care and make sure there's plenty of gas and oil. Here you can save even more by finding the cheapest gas station in a 5 or 10 block radius.

    Anytime you are in the car, the last thing you want to do is worry about spending 1/3 of your trip finding the best gas prices. That's why my friends and I have this app on our phones. It helps us find the best prices anywhere we are.

    If you want to enjoy your summer travels, saving 10 to 15 cents per gallon at the pump could be the right place to start. Convenient savings are right at your fingertips.

    One of the expenses you might forget about that can easily cost you over $300/month is getting gas every week or two. Why not use your phone to save money every time you go to the pump?

    This is such an easy way of finding the cheapest gas prices near to where you are, meaning you don't need to pay a premium when filling your car up. There's also a daily draw on the app to win $100 in free gas!

  • Really good but..... May 29, 2021

    By Cheflady00
    This app and what is does is great. My issue comes when the Gas Buddy credit card comes in to play. We got the credit card, and it links to the bank acct of your choice. Easy enough. I used it for the first time and all went well- or so I thought. About 5 days later I received a notice from gas buddy that they were unable to process charge due to insufficient funds. I was confused because there was money in acct when I got gas and money was there now. Apparently, when they finally decided to process the charge, our acct had dropped to about $5 less that what I owed on gas but money had been deposited within the same 24 hours that gas buddy tried to obtain funds owed. (What are the chances?) My mistake was that I assumed the gas buddy debit card would work like any other card and withdraw funds within 24(-48hrs) max. They wait almost 5 days and for us ,that isn’t doable. I gave them another chance. Watched acct closely this time. I received yet another email stating insufficient funds and this just wasn’t so. I had to call and talk with someone who helped me out but it was a hassle and shouldn’t have been this hard. For us, the credit card offered to receive additional discounts just wasn’t worth it. And actually ended up costing us more. Just be warned, if you use this card- there will be a significant delay from when you use card and when it is withdrawn from your bank acct.

    Love this app so much! Has really helped me save on gas and find the cheapest around. My two complaints are that I wish that hours could be added to gas stations so you don't drive there and have it be closed especially when you are running low. Also, I wish there was an option to leave out the club stores in the list if you don't have a membership there.
  • Use to like this app Jul 22, 2019

    By Life4dabeach
    I have had the GasBuddy app on my phones for many many years (with an iPhone 4) and it has worked great. In the beginning it was easy to use and throughout the years the developers kept adding new features to it. The Recall feature for your car, I don’t use. I think that it does not need to be there because I get those notifications from other sources. But this last update makes it EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to find the gas station near you. I have updated the price of a 7-Eleven that was listed at the top of the list, but that station was 5 miles away. This app is supposed to be quick and easy to update and see where the cheapest gas prices are near you. It is not supposed to try to sell you other gas stations that ain’t even close to your location. One more thing. With all of these new features, this app takes forever to open, load, and update the locations of the surrounding gas stations. I wish this app was simple and easier to use like it use to be.

  • Flaws Needing Attention Nov 23, 2018

    By 1H1B2G1C1D
    The concept of this app I love as it lets consumers aware of the best gas prices in the area. Your prediction option ALWAYS suggest that we hold off in buying as gas prices will go down tomorrow. A senseless option as it's not accurate. Since last update this app is difficult to open before closing completely. Once open have experience many "Something went wrong" and does accurately tally entered posts or allow you to enter posts due to the app flaw. Turning into a nuisance to use the app. App has difficulty in finding gas stations that I am at. Some gas stations are no longer listed yet still operating. Mind boggling My assessment of flaws needing attention continue. I love the concept of this app but since the start of using this app to today the system is boggled down and oh so slow. Stations will have been passed by to report price updates as the app is still concentrating on updating one station you already drove by...the app will send message “something went wrong” or cut out and prematurely close. Really frustrating to the point I don’t use the app as frequently as I did in the earlier years.
  • Great App Aug 22, 2019

    By Sloppy cheeseburger
    This is one of the best apps that I use, I like to look at it before my wife and I go out for a day of shopping. This way I know where the best price for gas is in my area. Plus we use it when we are traveling as well. I wouldn't be with out this APP. I can't say that I like the latest update, it makes it harder to navigate from 1 location to the next. I don't understand what was wrong with the old App. Why don't you listen to what users tell you? You have taken a great App and turned into something one has to wonder why you have it on your phone. I can't enter a Sams Club location that I have on my I pod but can't get it on my I phone. What the hell have you guys done??? I still don't like your new format, but I still use it.I have been trying to get the Walmart station located in Henrietta New York back on my list but you guys fail to do so. It's a good thing i have it saved under favorites because that's the only I can get the prices when i need it. Get with it and fix your app.

    It's been pretty good. Still learning how to use it. Wish there was more explanation on how to win gas and also more specific on that money was actually taken off of my transaction. Cause it's a tad confusing. And when I'm logging my gas in, sometimes the price of it will pop up as a few cents different than it originally said that the price of the gas will be. Usually higher.
  • Save A Bundle!!! Dec 2, 2017

    By 4DD317
    I’ve been using GasBuddy for over a year now and I usually buy Shell gasoline locally. I love the way I can easily find the least expensive prices here in the city. I like looking at the Map of prices vs the list, myself. I’ve saved so much money with GasBuddy along with the Fuel Rewards card from Shell and the combination of the two have provided an even greater savings. GasBuddy is equally as beneficial when traveling and also provides great versatility of individual setup within the app, as well. I love Google everything, but, Apple Maps seems more user friendly to me and I love that when finding directions to a station out of town, when bringing up directions, it goes directly to Apple Maps (because of the options I have chosen). I have never had any technical issues or crashes as I have with other apps either. Thank you so much for saving me money and offering such a user friendly application!!! Keep up the great work, GasBuddy!!!
  • Works but confusing UI and watch app is poor Feb 8, 2021

    By Drob518
    The fundamentals of the app work, but the UI is a bit confusing. For instance, access to favorite stations is not intuitive and should be more prominent (should be one of the primary navigation buttons at the bottom). I live near a river and the distanced-based metrics are nearly useless. Sure, the station with the cheapest gas is 2 miles away, as the crow flies. But it’s 25 miles away in terms of driving distance because I have to go across a bridge to cross the river and the bridge is several miles away in the opposite direction. The ideal would be to interface with a mapping app (eg. Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc.) to figure out “closeness” based on driving distance and time. Without that sort of capability, favorites are critical. Then, I can use favorites to override the app’s naive, as-the-crow-flies distance algorithm. The watch app would be very useful as a quick way to see this info, but it unfortunately only shows stations by the naive distance algorithm and has no ability to view favorites. Fix these problems and it would be 4 or 5 stars.
  • Desperately needs Top Tier search filter Feb 20, 2019

    By KY-doc
    Wonderful crowd sourced program. However, many major vehicle brands recommend using ONLY Top Tier certified fuels. We need a filter available to search only for these certified fuels. Each of these automakers recommends the use of Top Tier Detergent Gasoline in their owner's manuals. Top Tier Detergent Gasoline and Top Tier Diesel Fuel are performance specifications and trademarks designed and supported by several major automakers. BMW, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Navistar, and Audi support the gasoline standard, while General Motors, Volkswagen, Detroit Diesel, and Navistar support the diesel standard (as of 2018).Top Tier fuels must maintain levels of detergent additives that result in a higher standard of engine cleanliness and performance as compared to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirement. In addition, Top Tier fuels may not contain metallic additives, which can harm the vehicle emission system and create pollutants. As of 2018, Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is available from 61 licensed retail brands and Top Tier Diesel Fuel is available from 5 licensed retail brands.

    Used to LOVE this app. But have not been able to use for several months. When trying to open the app, I get a message - "there was a problem connecting to our servers, please try again" with a long alpha-numeric after it (which disappears too quickly to capture). Using a Samsung A20 in west TN.

    I loved this app. Always got me the cheapest gas price closest to me as possible. But for the past couple months, when I try to open it it always tells me it can't connect me to your server. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling and turning off my Wi-Fi and just running off of data. Nothing. I can't get on. And turning off my Wi-Fi and just running off of data. Nothing. I can't get on. Please please let me know if you know how to fix this because I really miss this app
  • GasBuddy Seems To Like Hiding Info From Its Customers Jan 16, 2020

    By ChiTownMo
    GasBuddy has to be one of the most frustrating companies I’ve done business with. Easily 50% of the time that I fill up my car, I get a discount for less than I’m supposed to. I check and double check the math to make certain that I did the math correctly and used the correct figures and and it’s wrong all the time. The receipts fail to give you the exact amount of the cost/gallon you were charged for each transaction. It will tell you how much you saved but not how much you were charged/gallon. Also, you cannot see how many gallons are left for the month of the 40 gallons/month you get a month at the $0.20/gallon discount, so sometimes you do not get the discount amount you were expecting because you allegedly already used all of your 40 gallons at $0.20 off/month. GasBuddy says on its Customer Service outgoing message that your monthly 40 gallon balance is clearly shown on the receipts, however I have checked both the paper receipt from the gas station, as well as the receipt emailed to me from GasBuddy itself, and neither receipt shows the balance. I checked all over the app too. The app does not show you your monthly 40 gallon @ $0.20 off/gallon balance anywhere. I suppose you just have to guess how many gallons you used each month so far to even predict if you will get a $0.20 discount or not. GasBuddy is a constant frustration in these (avoidable) respects.

    Signup using Google. Follow all the directions giving the permissions it asks for. Finally finish the sign up and the moment I get to the home screen it freezes. Ok, force stop and try again. Buffers forever and simply asks to retry. Retry several times, restart the app again and still doesn't work. What a complete waste of my time.
  • Scam Sep 17, 2019

    By DumpsterFireCompany
    Simply stated, this company is a scam. I made my first online purchase at Walmart, after clicking on the “deal” link that’s in the app. Presumably, the idea is that as long as you use the link and complete your purchase online, they will give you 4% “gas back” on your purchase that can be redeemed at the pump. I spent over $500 on tires, and submitted my proof as requested (email confirmation for purchase being the same as on file with gas buddy acct, order number, etc). Took 3 days for a response and it was quick and rude when I received it. “Thanks for the email” followed by telling me pickup orders aren’t eligible for gas back, as well as saying I should check the fine print (which I carefully read the disclosures before I completed my purchases and nowhere does it say your choice of delivery or pickup affects anything). I work in banking so disclosures are everything to me because I see people all the time have their expectations not met because they never read the disclosures they agreed to. If I had paid for the premium membership, I’d be even more annoyed because it was something I paid for to be treated as such, like we are bothering them for asking to hold up their end of what they are promising. But since it is free, I will be simply removing my bank account from the gas buddy card and going back to using my fuel rewards card at Shell stations like I used to. Not worth the hassle. At all.
  • Sep 4, 2021

    By Michael Woodard
    Don't get the card. Once you activate it, the app stops showing you the lowest prices and even hides other gas stations that normally would be on there, and only shows the ones you can get a discount on but they are way more expensive so technically you're not getting a discount! Very disappointed. If you have the card, look at gas prices. Then logout and look at gas prices.
  • Hardly user friendly hardly worth the effort Mar 5, 2019

    By HansenBoards
    Followed the initial instructions. Verified the small deposits in my bank. Card arrived. Tried to activate card. Error. Sent request for support. Solution: enter banking info again and wait “x” days for deposits to then verify. Meantime: I have a card in my possession. All I wanted to do was make use of saving money at the pump. At this rate I may as well not bother at all. Total time wasted on this app: 3 weeks. Also there is NEVER anyone “free” to take your call should you have a question ( like mine ) about setting up, or anything else for that matter. As loyalty bonus and payment cards go this one is pretty shoddy. Update: even premium membership month to month doesn’t get anything by way of rapid or transparent support. You can call the number all you want and still get an automated message to leave your name and email?? And someone will return your call... if you actually need to use what you pay for you’re pretty much SOL. The “offers” are for online only purchases. So if you use your VISA card anywhere, for example , it has to be online to get the added bonuses. They have been rolling out forever some winsome ideas that on paper look great but have yet to manifest - parking , car detailing , oil changes - how about you get customer service right first and then work from there ?

    By West S
    I went to a gas station because they advertised $0.15 off there so I scan my receipt and was excited I filled up my boats tank too. Well not only did they give me less than half of what they advertised but you have to open their credit card to even redeem the points total scam. Also they never mention you're applying for a credit card when you try to sign up other than in the terms and conditions. Stay away
  • I actually love this app it ain’t what it used to be Jan 14, 2020

    By Javier rover
    I gave you 2 stars because when I can get it to work it works but just okay. I’m using a iPhone 10 with the maximum amount of memory available and about 80% of the time I cannot get the app to open. That’s very frustrating as my wife drives most of the time and we both love getting prices sometimes we used to pull into stations and get the info just for fun. At first I thought it was just my phone but not so as virtually all my other apps open fine. Also when I shutdown everything and reboot my phone still it doesn’t work. Please fix this as I’ve been a user from like the very earliest days of your app and it’s a concept I fully believe in. Just yesterday I got gas a full $.30 cents a gallon cheaper than in my neighborhood and not at a discount station. At the station people were blowing their horn for me to move it took so long for the app to come up. I was persistent and parked and waited until I could get the app to work. I’ve got over 4 million points from posting prices help me out here. Anyway, when the app does open I still love it but it hangs up and doesn’t immediately post my changes even when it doesn’t hang up. I now write down prices and update from home. Fix your app guys there are customers missing out here.
  • Service takes too long to set up!! Apr 11, 2019

    By DaisyBlaze
    So I got the Gasbuddy card and wanted to start using it for savings as soon as I got it. I was very very hesitant to even sign up as I was skeptical as to whether or not it would work. So I get my card in the mail and immediately went to open the app and activate only to find out my account was not verified. I’ve used several apps that wanted to link to my account and the moment they were linked I was verified so I was super sketched out when this wasn’t the case and was told to wait 4 business days to verify and activate. I waited over a month and kept getting the same response from support until finally Cailin a manager with gas body reached out and said the account had become “frozen” and that she unfroze it and once a charge of .01 would appear and I’d be able to activate. WRONG!! So I go and wait the 2 business days for the charge to appear and process and still there is no sign that it was verified on the app and I’m still unable to activate. I immediately wrote to support about my new frustrations with my needs still not being met! I’m waiting on a response but now I’m even more doubtful that this service will work at all! I’ve never been so annoyed to actually ask for my penny back ! Like really!

  • Thank you! Sep 15, 2017

    By Kareve
    I just want to write a quick note of thank you to the developers of this app. You were a real lifesaver this past week down here in South Florida during hurricane Irma. I was frozen in terror of whether not to get on the road with the stories of all the gas outages. I have a toddler and couldn't imagine driving around town looking for stations and waiting in long lines. Once I read about your app and website online, I downloaded it. Within five minutes I found a gas station that still had gas and not too long of a line. I was able to make my drive up Orlando a little less scared knowing that I had you guys on my side. As soon as I got to my evacuation point, I used the app again to find gas before the storm hit so I was immediately able to get back on the road afterwards to get home. I can't say thank you enough! During an incredibly anxious and scary time, you made things a little bit easier and that means the world to me.

    What a wonderful app. I've been using this app for years. Due to hurricane Ida we have lost power for almost a week and gas stations were out of gas. Thanks to GasBuddy we were able to cut down on time looking for what's open and has gas. Thank you GasBuddy for updating the app in the time of need.
  • Love This App Sep 13, 2017

    By Lakush13
    I have been using Gas Buddy for quite some time now and have experienced no issues with it. On our recent drive out of the state of Florida and then back in after Irma passed, our search for gas would have been far more difficult had we not had the Gas Buddy app. Kudos to the Gas Buddy team for quickly updating the app to include information about stations out of gas and out of power. For those dinging the app for having incorrect information, you have to know that the gas price information is provided by the app users and it is helpful to look under the price to see when that price was submitted. The older the submission, the more the chance that the prices have changed. The prices are not a guarantee, but it is still far better than having no information at all. And saving money on gas over time using this app is the biggest benefit. Thank you Gas Buddy!!!
  • Love the GasBuddy Debit card Sep 30, 2019

    By Weathermom3223
    It’s so easy to signup and use the GasBuddy debit card. I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. The payment comes straight out of my checking account just like my regular debit card. It’s safer to use because I have to enter a PIN. Since having me regular debit card skimmed at a gas station, I was looking for a safer way to pay without using my credit card. This is perfect! I just wish GasBuddy would stop asking me to bump up to GasBuddy plus. There is virtually no savings when it’s $6.99 to bump up. You can only save $8.00 a month on gas. The other “benefits” aren’t nearly as good as AAA or most insurance companies already provide the majority of drivers. I shouldn’t have to decline this option 3-4 times a week. That’s annoying. I will do it, however, to get the extra $0.03 off every gallon and the security of not using my bank debit card at the pump.

    First, after getting my card activated I went to use it for the first time with the proper discount activated through the GasBuddy app and the card was denied 4 times, send a message to GasBuddy customer service and no solution. Second the drive offer that gives you Teo extra cents per galon does not work neither, it says tha my GasBuddy app is not allowed always in the location services, but it is. I’m conclusion, I was very excited about using this app and saving on gas but it looks like just another simple company trying to use a bunch off advertisements (aka marketing) to sell our information, I’m tired of being treated as a product. I will use it for one more week because I believe everybody deserves a second opportunity, but if I find more problems or false promises, I will delete it forever.
  • Convenient & Resourceful Mar 21, 2020

    By ojman873
    I use this app to find great deals on gas, help other drivers stay informed of the constantly fluctuating prices, and go keep track of my fuel usage and driving. That’s a lot and it’s not even all! I signed up for the free version of GasBuddy. It’s relatively convenient, works at all but a few stations, and pretty much guarantees a ~2-3% discount when processed. My only complaint is likely specific to Iowa. The majority of stations offer 3 basic choices for gasoline: 87 Octane (10% EtOH) “Midgrade or Super,” 87 Octane (no ethanol) “Regular” and 91 Octane premium (usually ethanol-free but varies). “Mid grade” is the cheapest, followed by “Regular” and then Premium. Some stations offer 89 octane mid-grade, while others don’t carry “Regular” ethanol free 87 octane. This gets confusing when searching! Standardized rules that apply here or greater flexibility in reporting prices would be helpful.

    Love this app so much! Has really helped me save on gas and find the cheapest around. My two complaints are that I wish that hours could be added to gas stations so you don't drive there and have it be closed especially when you are running low. Also, I wish there was an option to leave out the club stores in the list if you don't have a membership there.
  • Desperately needs Top Tier search filter Feb 20, 2019

    By KY-doc
    Wonderful crowd sourced program. However, many major vehicle brands recommend using ONLY Top Tier certified fuels. We need a filter available to search only for these certified fuels. Each of these automakers recommends the use of Top Tier Detergent Gasoline in their owner's manuals. Top Tier Detergent Gasoline and Top Tier Diesel Fuel are performance specifications and trademarks designed and supported by several major automakers. BMW, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Navistar, and Audi support the gasoline standard, while General Motors, Volkswagen, Detroit Diesel, and Navistar support the diesel standard (as of 2018).Top Tier fuels must maintain levels of detergent additives that result in a higher standard of engine cleanliness and performance as compared to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirement. In addition, Top Tier fuels may not contain metallic additives, which can harm the vehicle emission system and create pollutants. As of 2018, Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is available from 61 licensed retail brands and Top Tier Diesel Fuel is available from 5 licensed retail brands.

  • Stop with the teen eye candy crap Mar 8, 2020

    By fskrotzki
    Ver. 6.20.1 come on more dumb eye candy crap. Seriously. We don't need full screen animated graphics for entering points, we are not 12. Just simple positive feed back to let us know you got the prices is what is needed. The full screen and 1/3 screen black stuff is annoying and gets in the way when you sit at a corner trying to enter multiple stations pricing. Now you showing station prices with the $.05 off if we use the app for special deal except is NO BETTER then what I get on the card already and it taking up more screen space so I need to scroll LOTS MORE. I want option to turn it off. Same for locations that don’t honor the card as I don’t shop them already but somehow they get more screen space this more promotion. Way back on Ver 3 we could see 6-8 stations no problem now lucky if you see 4. Make a reporting persons job easier not harder and more time consuming. I want version 2.4 back it was so much simpler, efficient and easier to use. We used to have a setting that would take us directly to the station list we want it back. The home screen that shows 1 station and other stuff is really useless. The sorting option does not need to be a banner across the top of the station list ALL THE TIME. We want to see the stations so we can get pricing and enter pricing. Everything you do to take away from that is bad.
  • Definitely worth it Oct 7, 2017

    By App lover12345
    If you are on a budget or just trying to find the nearest gas station this app is perfect!! I love it, what a fantastic concept!! I would have given it 5 stars BUT there are only two complaints I have which are really not that bad. 1 they need to stop with the promoting premium features, let people use the app, it will market itself and people will want to buy the premium stuff. Stop trying to shove those features down our throats. And 2 it is pretty reliable but I've had some times where I'm going toward a gas station and I come across one that is listed higher than the actual price advertised on the board. I think this is just from a lack of people in my area actually updating the prices but the inaccuracies are definitely something that is a hinderance although it is tough to fix that. Overall it is a great app and really did execute the idea perfectly. Great job!!!
  • FIXERS Sep 26, 2017

    By Token Turtle
    When I 1st began, (bout 4 yrs ago), with G.B. I'd a give it 10 stars. Since then, ur fixers & their updates have eliminated phone #'s altogether, & @ 1 time, all location info was right up front, didn't have to do a thing. Not handicap, just seems with each fixers upgrade, the user friendliness takes a downgrade. STOP! Fixin, what ain't broke yall! Undrstnd???? I have, after several updates on ur end had to add a ⭐️ to my rating. I could possibly throw a few more in if, G. B. would reimplement stations ph #, & make it possible to edit our favorites. When traveling, it's nice to be able to look at prices down the road, but then back at home, all those down the road prices, along with my own misspelled locations create a lot of unnecessary clutter. Why is an edit feature still not an option? Can't believe that I am the only person who has addressed these issues???
  • Room for a little improvement... Oct 4, 2017

    By Con G. Ohio
    Hello, I really do like GasBuddy. However, I think your rules could use a small tweak. In your rules, it states: 1 report per station per hour. I will continue with the assumption that that rule includes all octanes, as 1 report. I believe, that if you make a report, and then see that the price changes within (sometimes within seconds of), that hour period, you should be aloud to make an adjustment to your prices. Then, your hour would start again, with the accurate report. I have seen this happen within seconds of making a report... *I have also inverted prices, and made a report, only to correct the mistake, and wonder if either of those reports counted? If you do not agree with my suggestions, and continue with rules as they are now, I will understand it would complicate things too much to make such changes. Plus, when traveling, and a station is not listed, the system says to ‘suggest’ a station. I have done this more than once, and was able to report 1 set of prices, while not being permitted to report another station not listed. I think this is another area with room for improvement. Please consider these options ! (*) = I am dyslexic... Thank you very much ! Con Gubser aka “cresbug”
  • Good but May 1, 2021

    By ArlingtonDawg
    I am giving it a four out of five because it does a very good job of letting me know of close gas stations and their prices. But as someone who has used this app since it was pretty much first released, I would warn them that the number of ads he’s getting a bit insane and a big reason why I don’t use it as much as I used to. For example, I just loaded the app to find out what the prices were around me and I had to deal with two different pop-up ads just to get to the first page. Then there are the ads that are in between gas stations in prices which I can deal with for the most part. But I hope the developers realize that if they continue to push and push ads on top of what is already there, customers like Myself will likely leave rather quickly
  • Gas buddy advertising Aug 10, 2019

    By drbink
    I love the app and the concept, understand that ads inside the app is part of the game.... however.... you’ve gone to far when the ads take over the app right in the middle of using it to show some stupid ad video.... enough is enough already... remove the video ads, stick with the ad banners if you must.... Shop Your Way redemption of gas buddy dollars is a frustrating ordeal at best.... limited opportunities to redeem items of interest... becoming more difficult to redeem points and have those items shipped to store with kmart’s and Sears closing down everywhere.... I’m becoming more and more disenchanted with Gas Buddy as it becomes more difficult to redeem points. And, why do the points have to expire? gives you no viable chance to redeem the points on a higher value item....
  • Really good but..... May 29, 2021

    By Cheflady00
    This app and what is does is great. My issue comes when the Gas Buddy credit card comes in to play. We got the credit card, and it links to the bank acct of your choice. Easy enough. I used it for the first time and all went well- or so I thought. About 5 days later I received a notice from gas buddy that they were unable to process charge due to insufficient funds. I was confused because there was money in acct when I got gas and money was there now. Apparently, when they finally decided to process the charge, our acct had dropped to about $5 less that what I owed on gas but money had been deposited within the same 24 hours that gas buddy tried to obtain funds owed. (What are the chances?) My mistake was that I assumed the gas buddy debit card would work like any other card and withdraw funds within 24(-48hrs) max. They wait almost 5 days and for us ,that isn’t doable. I gave them another chance. Watched acct closely this time. I received yet another email stating insufficient funds and this just wasn’t so. I had to call and talk with someone who helped me out but it was a hassle and shouldn’t have been this hard. For us, the credit card offered to receive additional discounts just wasn’t worth it. And actually ended up costing us more. Just be warned, if you use this card- there will be a significant delay from when you use card and when it is withdrawn from your bank acct.

  • Flaws Needing Attention Nov 23, 2018

    By 1H1B2G1C1D
    The concept of this app I love as it lets consumers aware of the best gas prices in the area. Your prediction option ALWAYS suggest that we hold off in buying as gas prices will go down tomorrow. A senseless option as it's not accurate. Since last update this app is difficult to open before closing completely. Once open have experience many "Something went wrong" and does accurately tally entered posts or allow you to enter posts due to the app flaw. Turning into a nuisance to use the app. App has difficulty in finding gas stations that I am at. Some gas stations are no longer listed yet still operating. Mind boggling My assessment of flaws needing attention continue. I love the concept of this app but since the start of using this app to today the system is boggled down and oh so slow. Stations will have been passed by to report price updates as the app is still concentrating on updating one station you already drove by...the app will send message “something went wrong” or cut out and prematurely close. Really frustrating to the point I don’t use the app as frequently as I did in the earlier years.
  • Works but confusing UI and watch app is poor Feb 8, 2021

    By Drob518
    The fundamentals of the app work, but the UI is a bit confusing. For instance, access to favorite stations is not intuitive and should be more prominent (should be one of the primary navigation buttons at the bottom). I live near a river and the distanced-based metrics are nearly useless. Sure, the station with the cheapest gas is 2 miles away, as the crow flies. But it’s 25 miles away in terms of driving distance because I have to go across a bridge to cross the river and the bridge is several miles away in the opposite direction. The ideal would be to interface with a mapping app (eg. Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc.) to figure out “closeness” based on driving distance and time. Without that sort of capability, favorites are critical. Then, I can use favorites to override the app’s naive, as-the-crow-flies distance algorithm. The watch app would be very useful as a quick way to see this info, but it unfortunately only shows stations by the naive distance algorithm and has no ability to view favorites. Fix these problems and it would be 4 or 5 stars.

  • Used to be Better Sep 29, 2020

    By robertdoes
    I used to love gasbuddy. I signed up, got the card and was getting good discounts and reporting prices regularly. Then they changed it so that 5 cents off (standard with their card) became a deal alert, and without activating you only get 3 cents off, which is fine I always activate my card for the “deal” before filling up. But since that change I haven’t once gotten a deal of over 5 cents savings. I used to get anywhere from 5-23 cents off per gallon. Those bigger deals were incentives for me to use the app more, and report prices. I’ve slowly stopped reporting and checking for deals because of this, and it appears others have done the same. Hardly any stations in my area have reported prices anymore. I’ll take the 5 cents off per gallon, but I’m disappointed in the changes they made earlier this year, and as a result engage far less in their app.
  • Add three options for bank card users Jan 30, 2019

    By Anna the cummuter
    I commute 500 miles a week for work and I would like for the app to add three things that cause the price of gas to increase for bank card users debit & credit. Your app is for cash prices only. The transaction fee is profit for the gas station owner. Don’t trust the gas station owner story about the bank charge fee. 1). For card users there is a transaction fee. This fee is not disclosed anywhere only once you pay. I seen it range from 35 cents to 50 cents per transaction for purchasing gas. 35 cents is usually at the gas pump or if the pump card machine is down you pay inside the store and get charged. If you decline to pay the fee your card is rejected and you can’t put gas. 2) Also, I have seen on numerous occasions the pump card machine is not working so you pay inside with your card and that is where I seen them charge me 50 cents to put gas. 3) the gas station sign will promote there gas price at $2.89 and once I stop to put my card in at the pump to pay once it’s completed the price changed to $2.99 because I used my bank card. That is a 10 cents increase! This is done with debit/credit cards. This is happening everywhere. It’s seems to be the new norm. I would like to see your app have an area to add the FEE price for card users. PLEASE
  • App Used to be Better Jan 25, 2020

    By 19gps
    With all the updates and revisions, this app has gone slightly downhill as far as this user is concerned. Restaurant listings (fast food or other), do not belong in the listings unless a user is requesting that specific information. As much as this user tried to undo the restaurants from showing up, I was unable to remove them. Several revisions back there was the option to get to a general advice suggestion and find out if the tendency of gas prices wasto go up or down in the next 24 hours. The page heading was something to the effect of: Should I fill up today or tomorrow?? I always believe if it’s not broken then don’t try to fix it. I just wish they would have left this app alone because it was easier to use before all of the extra bells and whistles were added.
  • Used to love it now really hate it Jun 1, 2018

    By htfgse
    I have been actively using GasBuddy since years. Lately it becomes slower and slower. Even worse, randomly it crashes the whole IOS system, so restart is needed. However that’s not enough to make me upset. It has been at least the last 5 times I used it to find the least expensive gas station and found out the price is wrong by far. The prices on the list are completely off. Totally different than the prices showed when you clicked the particular station. It’s very aggravating when you had to drive an extra 5 miles for cheaper gas but then found out it’s more expensive that the nearby ones. Even worse now you’re running out of gas to go back where you were, so had no choice but to fill expensive gas instead. GasBuddy..., what’s wrong with you?
  • Never Received Gas Card... Jan 15, 2021

    By C.L-D
    Update: Finally received my GasBuddy card after writing this 1-star review and more than 6 months of trying. Hopefully it works. Will update soon. Original post: I have used this app for a while now and have submitted several gas price updated, reviewed gas stations, etc. to receive points. I have plenty built up and have not been able to receive to GasBuddy card. I’ve been back and forth with customer service about it and they keep telling me they are going to send me a card. It’s been over 6 months now and I have all this cash back saved up but can’t use it. Big waste of time. GetUpside has given me over $100 in gift cards and works great. If GasBuddy would get me the card that allows me to use my cash back, I’d give them 5 stars. Until then, 1 star... Wish everyone else luck.
  • Hardly user friendly hardly worth the effort Mar 5, 2019

    By HansenBoards
    Followed the initial instructions. Verified the small deposits in my bank. Card arrived. Tried to activate card. Error. Sent request for support. Solution: enter banking info again and wait “x” days for deposits to then verify. Meantime: I have a card in my possession. All I wanted to do was make use of saving money at the pump. At this rate I may as well not bother at all. Total time wasted on this app: 3 weeks. Also there is NEVER anyone “free” to take your call should you have a question ( like mine ) about setting up, or anything else for that matter. As loyalty bonus and payment cards go this one is pretty shoddy. Update: even premium membership month to month doesn’t get anything by way of rapid or transparent support. You can call the number all you want and still get an automated message to leave your name and email?? And someone will return your call... if you actually need to use what you pay for you’re pretty much SOL. The “offers” are for online only purchases. So if you use your VISA card anywhere, for example , it has to be online to get the added bonuses. They have been rolling out forever some winsome ideas that on paper look great but have yet to manifest - parking , car detailing , oil changes - how about you get customer service right first and then work from there ?
  • I actually love this app it ain’t what it used to be Jan 14, 2020

    By Javier rover
    I gave you 2 stars because when I can get it to work it works but just okay. I’m using a iPhone 10 with the maximum amount of memory available and about 80% of the time I cannot get the app to open. That’s very frustrating as my wife drives most of the time and we both love getting prices sometimes we used to pull into stations and get the info just for fun. At first I thought it was just my phone but not so as virtually all my other apps open fine. Also when I shutdown everything and reboot my phone still it doesn’t work. Please fix this as I’ve been a user from like the very earliest days of your app and it’s a concept I fully believe in. Just yesterday I got gas a full $.30 cents a gallon cheaper than in my neighborhood and not at a discount station. At the station people were blowing their horn for me to move it took so long for the app to come up. I was persistent and parked and waited until I could get the app to work. I’ve got over 4 million points from posting prices help me out here. Anyway, when the app does open I still love it but it hangs up and doesn’t immediately post my changes even when it doesn’t hang up. I now write down prices and update from home. Fix your app guys there are customers missing out here.

    3 times this has happened: I got gas early in the day when my checking balance was low. I was pre-approved for what I had in my account and got gas no problem. Later on the same day I went back after I had deposited more money into my checking but it wouldn't pre-approve because I had used all the money I had available earlier that day. It would not update to the new balance even though there was over $500 available. I had to pay cash with no discount.

  • The app functionality is great, but an expensive caution Sep 28, 2018

    By Falcon059
    So the primary function of Gas Buddy is great. Simple, intuitive, functional. It gets 4 stars from me, mainly because it could do a little better flagging Cash Only prices in various display modes. That’s really my biggest complaint on primary functionality. However I had a nasty surprise this month. One I feel compelled to write this review for. This app is a profligate data hog, and one that if you use on a cell phone you must be aware of. Last month I noticed an excessive amount of data usage in System Services. Largely Time and Location. On the order of 5.5 GB for the month, just for this. No usage, this was passive data consumption I could not turn off, or so I thought. At the start of the new billing period I reset my data statistics and did a test while driving. Over a 40 minutes trip, when the phone was not even touched and not in use, it used 96mb of data. This was all Gas Buddy using location services. If you say ‘yes’ to allowing Gas Buddy to using your location, it defaults to setting it to using location always. Not just while I’m use. This consumes a massive amount of data as you drive, one that can lead to nasty billing surprises on your cell plan. So turn off location services from ‘always’. I switched it to ‘only while in use’ and, magically, my data for the same drive today was .6mb. So very useful app, but please be aware of this to spare yourself the same $45 surprise I had last month.
  • Latest Update Not So Good May 13, 2018

    By avidreader10
    Loved this app when it first came out. Wrote a glowing review. In the last few years it has slowly evolved to where ads are everywhere and they are gigantic. Take up more than half a page. It’s almost impossible to scroll to view info without touching the ads. This makes the app significantly more annoying and less usable. It takes much longer to find the info which used to be listed right in front of your eyes. Instead of. Simple list of the 10 nearest gas stations listed by price or distance you get one gas station, a giant ad which you have to somehow scroll past carefully without touching it, then another couple of small ads, then another gas station, another gigantic ad...etc. ridiculous! I realize the hard work of the developers deserves compensation but I would rather pay for the app than deal with the gigantic ads which are in your face. I’m on the verge of deleting this app from my phone. I’m sure someone can provide a more usable product.
  • Questionable Limits Aug 10, 2019

    By lennandmandy
    I’ve been using the the app for the past several months now. I’ve seen decent savings. The problem is that you have a spending limit each month. Make sure you have a backup credit card if you expect to take a road trip that requires you to fill up three or four times in a day. Even more important,...I can no longer make purchases over $75 at certain locations, which has now become an even bigger hassle. I cannot fill up fuel tanks. I leave with 3/4 of a tank. They won’t allow you to run the pump a second time. You have to wait until the next day to make another purchase. I have pickup trucks with 56, 52, and 35 gallon fuel tanks. Let’s be honest,...$75 isn’t gonna buy you that much fuel. I don’t see the benefit of partial fill ups. I hope others see this before they experience what’s happening to me. UPDATE: THIS APP DOES NOT BENEFIT ANYONE WITH MULTIPLE VEHICLES OR VEHICLES WITH LARGER FUEL TANKS. IT CREATES TOO MUCH OF A HASSLE WITH PURCHASES.

  • GasBuddy Seems To Like Hiding Info From Its Customers Jan 16, 2020

    By ChiTownMo
    GasBuddy has to be one of the most frustrating companies I’ve done business with. Easily 50% of the time that I fill up my car, I get a discount for less than I’m supposed to. I check and double check the math to make certain that I did the math correctly and used the correct figures and and it’s wrong all the time. The receipts fail to give you the exact amount of the cost/gallon you were charged for each transaction. It will tell you how much you saved but not how much you were charged/gallon. Also, you cannot see how many gallons are left for the month of the 40 gallons/month you get a month at the $0.20/gallon discount, so sometimes you do not get the discount amount you were expecting because you allegedly already used all of your 40 gallons at $0.20 off/month. GasBuddy says on its Customer Service outgoing message that your monthly 40 gallon balance is clearly shown on the receipts, however I have checked both the paper receipt from the gas station, as well as the receipt emailed to me from GasBuddy itself, and neither receipt shows the balance. I checked all over the app too. The app does not show you your monthly 40 gallon @ $0.20 off/gallon balance anywhere. I suppose you just have to guess how many gallons you used each month so far to even predict if you will get a $0.20 discount or not. GasBuddy is a constant frustration in these (avoidable) respects.

  • Scam Sep 17, 2019

    By DumpsterFireCompany
    Simply stated, this company is a scam. I made my first online purchase at Walmart, after clicking on the “deal” link that’s in the app. Presumably, the idea is that as long as you use the link and complete your purchase online, they will give you 4% “gas back” on your purchase that can be redeemed at the pump. I spent over $500 on tires, and submitted my proof as requested (email confirmation for purchase being the same as on file with gas buddy acct, order number, etc). Took 3 days for a response and it was quick and rude when I received it. “Thanks for the email” followed by telling me pickup orders aren’t eligible for gas back, as well as saying I should check the fine print (which I carefully read the disclosures before I completed my purchases and nowhere does it say your choice of delivery or pickup affects anything). I work in banking so disclosures are everything to me because I see people all the time have their expectations not met because they never read the disclosures they agreed to. If I had paid for the premium membership, I’d be even more annoyed because it was something I paid for to be treated as such, like we are bothering them for asking to hold up their end of what they are promising. But since it is free, I will be simply removing my bank account from the gas buddy card and going back to using my fuel rewards card at Shell stations like I used to. Not worth the hassle. At all.

    Don't get the card. Once you activate it, the app stops showing you the lowest prices and even hides other gas stations that normally would be on there, and only shows the ones you can get a discount on but they are way more expensive so technically you're not getting a discount! Very disappointed. If you have the card, look at gas prices. Then logout and look at gas prices.

    I went to a gas station because they advertised $0.15 off there so I scan my receipt and was excited I filled up my boats tank too. Well not only did they give me less than half of what they advertised but you have to open their credit card to even redeem the points total scam. Also they never mention you're applying for a credit card when you try to sign up other than in the terms and conditions. Stay away

    So I got the Gasbuddy card and wanted to start using it for savings as soon as I got it. I was very very hesitant to even sign up as I was skeptical as to whether or not it would work. So I get my card in the mail and immediately went to open the app and activate only to find out my account was not verified. I’ve used several apps that wanted to link to my account and the moment they were linked I was verified so I was super sketched out when this wasn’t the case and was told to wait 4 business days to verify and activate. I waited over a month and kept getting the same response from support until finally Cailin a manager with gas body reached out and said the account had become “frozen” and that she unfroze it and once a charge of .01 would appear and I’d be able to activate. WRONG!! So I go and wait the 2 business days for the charge to appear and process and still there is no sign that it was verified on the app and I’m still unable to activate. I immediately wrote to support about my new frustrations with my needs still not being met! I’m waiting on a response but now I’m even more doubtful that this service will work at all! I’ve never been so annoyed to actually ask for my penny back ! Like really!

    This will be my last month using gb premium. The card wont work when its time to renew membership and calling customer service is an endless series of prompts. I will continue to use the app for checking gas prices, though. Update 9/6/21. So I kept the paid membership a little longer to see if things got better. Of course not. I emailed their "customer service" to cancel membership this month prior to renewal date and naturally, they billed me.

    I have used app for many years. Its great. If people update prices it's perfect. After all it is based on user input. However I got new phone (A12) and now it only works over wifi. Weird. When I'm on the road it gives me Server errors. When I'm online at home wifi looking at prices then turn off wifi and refresh it stops displaying info and says try again. I look online and see other have similar issues although no one mentions the wifi thing. I'm sad.
