Waze was feeding the same 3rd party data back when they told us to use cash prices. I don't think waze thinks the third party data is credit data.

It was my understanding that the 3rd party prices were cash prices!


What you understood and the reality of the situation are two different things. All but once, I've seen credit prices when I see "reported by 3rd party."

Cash is not the way to go. Credit is.

All but twice, I've only seen inaccurate and/or missing prices when I see "reported by 3rd party".

We will add a note the "update gas price menu" that it should be cash only.
I'm not sure we'll be able to add it to our next release, but it will be added to one of the next releases.


Thanks,

Ori

So was this ever done? I can't remember seeing it.

I've been paying attention, and around here, the third party prices are reasonably accurate, at least for the day before. They are also the credit prices, not cash.

I can't see anyone who drives a big-tanked vehicle pulling out $60-plus dollars in the US and walking in as often as swiping a card at the pump, especially in the wintertime. Sorry; credit is what we should be using in the US. I can't speak for Israel, but they shouldn't be speaking for us either.

Nobody is speaking for the US, most of the US Champs were in agreement that it should be cash which is the true price.

Frankly I think you should catch up with the rest of the world and have no difference between cash and credit!

Around here the majority of stations don't charge different price for credit than cash, so most of the time it doesn't matter for me. It only matters when I route to the lowest price and it turns out the station is one of the ones that charges a premium for credit. This does happen to me where the low price is the cash price and is labeled as updated by the third party.
So it seems to me the third party does not consistently provide the correct credit prices.

So you don't think retailers should offer their product to customers willing to pay cash at the true price the retailer gets after the credit card companies take their 10-15% from the sale?

10-15%? Not a chance.
Cash vs credit prices and adding sales tax at the till rather than on the ticket? Pain in the ass! I'd rather just know what I see is what I'm paying!
