prices and identify the lowest priced fuel in their area - helping everyone to

GasBuddy.com - GasBuddy/OpenStore LLC
Our mission is to serve the public by providing a real
time gas prices forum so that consumers can have access to the information
necessary to locate the lowest fuel prices available. By working together as a
community everyone will save money at the pumps.
The GasBuddy.com web site was developed as an initiative to provide all
residents and visitors to the area access to local current gas prices. This is
an entirely free service that depends on users to input gas prices on a daily
basis to keep the database of prices up to date. Since the price of gas is
often extremely volatile, posted gas prices may vary as much as 20% within only
a few blocks of each other. By having access to the most recent prices at
GasBuddy.com consumers now are able to locate the most inexpensive fuel price
in the city and fill up on a budget.
GasBuddy.com also provides other fuel related information and money saving tips
for consumers in their local area .
The fuel prices listed on GasBuddy.com are intended to be based on the price of
Regular Unleaded Gasoline and Number 2 diesel fuel. The data base is designed
to remove prices from display
hours after the time that they were entered which helps to keep the price data
as current as possible. The GasBuddy system is designed to access the
GasBuddy.com database from a remote location and displays the current local low
and high fuel prices.
