CNET Editors' review

GasBuddy uses your mobile device's GPS and the latest user-reported gas station data to help you locate the lowest fuel prices in your area. It's a free download that will very likely save you money in the long run.

GasBuddy is cleanly designed and easy to use. Fire it up, and search by city or ZIP code, or simply click Find Gas Near Me. Either way, the app will quickly pull up a list of the gas stations in your area and sort by price or distance. And if you want, you can switch to the slightly more convenient, albeit slower-loading Map View. Clicking on any station will yield more details including extra amenities that may be available (service station, convenience store, and so on).

Now the secret behind GasBuddy is that all of its data is user-reported. Though it may seem a little sketchy, it's actually quite reliable, as users are incentivized by gas giveaways to input the most up-to-the-minute and accurate data. The downside here is that rural areas draw from significantly fewer users, and are less likely to have the latest pricing information. Those living in heavily populated, smartphone-loving cities, however, have nothing to worry about.

If you choose to create an account on GasBuddy and help with the price-spotting, you'll also get the ability to mark favorite stations. This can be a helpful filter for drivers living in over-served areas with a station on every corner, or for those with branded gas station credit cards.

Overall, GasBuddy for Android is an incredibly useful tool for drivers, especially those living in heavily populated cities. If you're trying to avoid pain at the pump (and these days, who isn't?), then we suggest you download GasBuddy and let it guide you to the cheapest station.

    "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.

    December 28, 2011  |   By jiaotzegirl

    Version: GasBuddy for Android 2.01

    Pros

    Easy to use, has helped me save $$ on diesel, as well as locate stations. So far I have found the information 100% accurate.

    Cons

    Some stations do not have info, because the information is supplied by the users?
