Hey RASfuel, thanks for the shout out. I don't find the videos annoying, well, maybe somewhat, since you have to be looking for them and then initiate each one instead of autoplay. I do "watch" them, simply for the point value, on my early morning commute. I actually just let them play through to the end. The message is of no interest since I'm not a gamer and that seems to be the only advertisers that currently participate. And the games don't seem to be very compelling in any case, at least to me. I figure GasBuddy is trying to monetize the community and incentivize member participation via the point rewards. I'll take them, but the ad I can really do without. I can see where this can be a distraction, more so than reporting prices, for those interested. But maybe no so much as texting. GasBuddy may need to think about that issue from a safety standpoint.
