GasBuddy is only as good as the people reporting, and lately, I've been seeing a host of bogus posts where the reporter could not possibly have actually passed the station in question.

I saved so much money today. I didn't hit the gas stations. Not a single ONE. Saved thousands.

A few short trips under 100 miles or so. Take it easy with BBQ and drinks.
Use GasBuddy to look for 'cheaper' fuel prices in the local area or when traveling.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
