Wazers in Colombia can now find the cheapest, closest gas stations on or along their route, thanks to the launch of Waze’s real-time gas price feature in the South American nation.
For the feature to work effectively, Colombia Wazers (and all drivers with the gas price feature) need update the prices they see at a gas station for the community. The better crowdsourcing gas price data YOU contribute, the more drivers who will get to save $$$ on gas! Do your part — so that no one has to fill up at one station when a better price is just down the street!
The Colombia launch is credited to the work of the map editing community there, which mapped out 1,200 of their countries’ gas stations in the Waze map editor.
In order for us to enable our real-time gas price feature in more countries, the map editing community needs to add up to 70% of a country’s total gas stations to the Waze map.
To update gas prices — just click on the Report button and choose Gas Prices whenever you’re at or near a gas station.
