Here is a fresh idea concerning those who have cried out for relief because they have lost all of their standing because of unforeseen circumstances.Such as, hospitalization, an overseas business trip, or a cruise or vacation where they have no opportunity or ability to post gas prices or to read or respond to blogs, let this be the method: No points toward their consecutive days can Instead, 1 their consecutive days would be frozen with 3 days deducted for each day missed to a maximum of 1 month. 2 Charge them with the loss of 5,000 points per day (slightly more than 3 times the max they could earn in a single day). 3 If the Gas Buddy does not reconnect within that month, at the end the person must start over from the beginning to earn consecutive days. That would give our faithful and loyal older citizens a glimmer of hope. And earn good will for Gas Buddy.

Of course this is just the members who respond to the polls. I wonder how many actual members there are and of the active members what their GB age is?

Now they need to compare this result with the actual gas buddy age in the list of users who have
1) posted a price in the last week
2) actually did the poll
3) read a news article
4) clicked on an ad.

Sad to see so few new (2 years or less) members. GasBuddy needs to target referrals and advertise GB.

I've noticed that the largest percentage of GBs are those which have been in it for the longest period of time and decreases with newer members. Are we not enlisting others to join? Why? Might it be because there isn't any incentive to recruit others who will then compete for a shrinking pie? If GB were to award about 50,000 points for recruiting a new member, then the number of new members would be staggering.

When I found this site in 2004 I fell in love with the 'Fuel Log Book' and
all the available prices for not just one, but all stations. Speedway has
their specific site but Gas Buddy has them all. Thanks for being here.

Great show on the dinner cruse ! On the Showboat at Branson MO.

Get half price tickets at the purplish building and no strings attached.

This is the third time back at Branson.. Great place... Going to another place on Saturday at the Ozark Mountains for a week then back home..

Tks Gas buddy for the information of the best prices of fuel along the way.
