GasBuddy: Find Cheap Gas Review
Stop wasting your gas as you drive around to find the nearest and cheapest gas station, GasBuddy can do all the work for you. Thanks to this app you’ll be getting the best prices out there.
With over 60 million downloads worldwide, GasBuddy is the world’s largest community-based fuel app. It outsmarts the pump, using information provided by own users.
GasBuddy maps the nearest gas station sorting them by price and location, allowing you to find the cheapest one in your area. Using GPS and cellular triangulation technology, with this app you can also search by zip code or city. Simply putting it in your location, and you’ll be saving money in no time.
GasBuddy has the most accurate and real-time fuel prices at over 140,000 stations in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The crowdsourced app asks you to enter the prices you pay at the pump, and then lists the gas stations in your area, letting you find the cheapest one.
The app encourages people to post gas prices by offering a weekly drawing for a $100 gas card. GasBuddy gives you points every time you post prices. You only need to report about six or seven gas prices to be eligible for the drawing.
Updating gas stations with new gas prices is both helpful to you and other users.
The GasBuddy app feels convenient and intuitive in use. The design is simple, yet stylish. There are three sections available on the main screen — Find Gas, Win, and Profile.
In the Find Gas section, you can track the nearest station on the detailed map, which you can easily switch to the list of the stations, each with a proper logo. Win section, with a cup icon, shows the challenges available for you to win $100 in Free Gas.
And in Profile you can track your latest activity like GasBuddy age, All-Time Points, Points Today, Unused Points, Overall Rank, 30 Days Rank, and Consecutive Days Reporting.
It’s easy to get each section by tapping on the icons below the screen.
Usability-wise, GasBuddy does its job well by providing you with the lowest gas prices and giving your points if you update the prices yourself. Whether you travel great and far or just drive around the city, this app will help you find convenient gas stations at the lowest price.
As you open the app, you have to pick the country you are currently in, choosing from United States, Canada, and Australia. Then sign up if you are interested in being a part of the community to update the prices and earn the achievements.
On the main screen, you will see a logo of the app which you tap to find the nearest gas stations around. There are also three sorting types, including price, location, and Smart Sort, which groups the stations by distance and price at the same time.
In the settings you also can check the options for “Only show Top Tier Stations,” “Only show stations with cash discounts,” and “Hide stations that don’t have my fuel.”
However, as long as the gas prices in the app depend on the users’ activity, some stations’ prices might be outdated.
