...It seem to me to be highly beneficial for waze to simply state that the prices that are shown from the external source are cash prices and that they should be updated by wazers with the cash price...

gettingthere wrote:Again, please update prices using the cash price. All Wazers need to be using the same data entry process or this new gas price comparison functionality is totally useless since you cannot compare between stations effectively. It's bad enough that prices are already showing for grades of fuel that are not available (eg. Diesel).
To be honest, I can't remember the last time I was at a station that charged extra for credit. No that's not right, the last time was the second time I used waze to find a gas station. But before that I can't remember. So I haven't really given cash prices any thought until waze added the feature.gettingthere wrote:If you pay with credit card you know you will be paying more in many cases. You surely already know which brands around you charge extra for credit.

Well, again, that's kind of the point. If its the universal entry price, that's great. But its pretty clear now that it is not the universal entry price in waze yet.
