Editors' Review

+

GasBuddy is a fully loaded application that assists you in finding inexpensive gas near you. Features like reporting gas prices and entering daily contests help create an active community of devotees.

Pros

Active members: GasBuddy relies on self-reporting to ensure its prices are accurate. Because you win prizes and awards by reporting this price information, it helps increase the amount of information you can find.

Correct prices: Our tests showed that almost all gas prices were accurate when compared to the stations, themselves, with most differences being only a tenth of a cent.

Total package: For a free application, GasBuddy provides many features. Google Maps integration gives you access to GPS navigation, and each gas station has a profile that describes amenities and even includes photos.

Cons

Minor instability: GasBuddy performs well almost all of the time; however, we noted that GasBuddy crashed during one test.

Bottom Line

GasBuddy is a powerful, easy-to-use application. Its user base is constantly contributing, and its price reports are almost always found to be accurate. GasBuddy already helps you save money by comparison shopping, but we would like to see a feature that provides additional savings through coupons and specials, like that of Gas Coupons. GasBuddy is a top-tier application in all aspects. We suggest giving it a try; you won't be disappointed.

"One of my top 10 apps. I use it EVERY TIME I BUY GAS!"

August 11, 2012  |  By Spielzeuger

 |  Version: GasBuddy for Android 2.01

Pros

Simple Interface: One click for a list of nearby stations/prices, and one click to sort station list by price (versus location).

Map/Directions: One click to get directions from your location to the gas station of choice.

Fast: Loads station list in a flash.

Current Data: Station list shows when price was last updated...prices "older" than a couple days are "reset" or cleared.

Price Reporting is SUPER EASY: Click "Update" for any station in the list then type 3 digits for each price...no decimal, no 9/10ths, you don't even need to hit "enter". Literally COULDN'T be simpler.

Cons

The ONLY con I can think of is that you'll be tempted to use it while driving! DON'T DO IT! Take a minute to pull over long enough to find a place to fill up.
