    Isn't it only as good as the people who update it?

    Plus, what's to stop the owner of the station to upload a cheaper price only for you to show up and it's higher. Classical bait & switch.

    Chances are you'll get gas since you're there anyway. I paid $2.60 for mid-grade today. :(

    It has literally jumped 20 cents this week.

    I'm glad I work 5mi away. Just across town.

    But the punishment of humid weather sees to it my a/c is cranked in my car...so it balances itself.

    Since this has divulged to gas prices in general, 87 is about $2.85, 91 is about $3. Ouch.
