If the price displayed is for cash, and all signage says that, why would anyone be disputing this? Seems pretty obvious to me which one is the one to use.

What's the point of continuing to incite the argument here? There are plenty of good arguments to dispute this. The point is we all need to do the same thing and waze has indicated that we should use cash. Why do you want all the reasons reiterated as to why I would choose credit if I was waze?

I don't think he is. I read it as a rhetorical question. He's just agreeing with the previous posters.

Pick on me day today then ;)
Yes I was purely agreeing with the previous few posts, and saying that it made sense. No intention of continuing a debate that has been solved, just a thumbs up really 8-)

Ahh. Glad I asked rather than answering the rhetorical question.

With everyone referencing what GasBuddy does... I distinctly remember the GasBuddy FAQ formerly stating (within the past year) that you should report the credit/debit price and add in the comments if there is a cash discount since most people use cards. I'm guessing they changed this since to get more uniformity since many people report the prices driving down the road based on the sign which often has only the lower cash price.

Sure enough. But we should still be consistent and enter cash as that's what waze is using.

There may be a fairly simple way to get the best of both worlds in regards to cash/credit. Given that cash is the desired entry for tracking prices, why not have the credit card price calculate automatically? All you would need is a credit price offset indicator and set of buttons to increment, or decrement the offset. This assumes that the credit price increase is equal across the board, which it seems to be in my area. One additional step to make a gas price entry, and everybody's happy.

It isn't.... and CT, the legal price of gas is the Credit Price & retailers are allowed to offer (at their own discretion) a discount for cash, and that varies from station to station...
