Before activating the gas station price features in Puerto Rico, over 70% of all gas stations must be mapped with gas station landmarks by the local community.

How do you think we are doing on that goal from what you see?

Gas Stations in Puerto Rico are now working!!! BUT I noticed a problem with the pricing system. Gas in PR is charged by the litter and not by gallon. My workaround is simple, I multiply by 4 all current pricing of the gas stations and that's what I'm reporting. It would be nice to request a feature to change from gallon to litters or better yet change automatically by location. What do you guys think?

I'll see what it would take to convert from Gal to L and get back to you...

So initial conversation with Waze says the app doesn't state Gal anywhere and prices you report should just reflect what is on the signs.

Do you get an error about "invalid price" when you put in the actual price?

What is the current normal range of prices right now?

I get an error. Prices here range from 80 cents to a dollar something per litter. I'm guessing the error happens when trying to input anything below a dollar, so I pretty much speculated it asked as of US standards which in sure way a gallon will never cost less than a dollar in the future :s

Now with new taxes for gas in PR that will be the case in the near future for us, even for litters, but for now, Waze won't recognize anything below 1USD I presume.

Okay, it sounds like it may be the error checking to make sure someone didn't typo a price. Waze can adjust the range. What would you say a sane range of prices is? Taking in account current, past, and maybe a guess to the future. $0.50 to $2.00? $0.75 to $1.50?

And does that apply to all grades of fuel?

It can be adjusted again in the future if there is a major change.

To be on the safe side I'd go with $0.50 to $2.00 we may never see prices below $0.80 but we never know, news change everyday. Here's a current official table just to give you an idea.

Looking at that sheet, so do you guys typically show prices in CENTS per liter at the stations?
