We have an issue here in Colombia. The gas prices are in thousands. For example regular gas price on average in $8400 COP.

In the US the prices are arround 4 or 3 USD.

When Im in a gas station I can't report prices because of format, it just says that there is an error. The app expects prices in units of dollars. Not in thousands of pesos, our currency

Please fix it.

Congratulations. This app helps me a lot to avoid traffic

Greetings from Medellin - Colombia.

Im using Waze on Android. A smartphone Samsung mini 2

When renewing prices via pop-up it always empty, even I filled prices day before.

I've noticed this as well. Must be a bug - my popup was empty and at the same time been updated a day ago.

I have made the same observation. But also since I can now update fuel prices the prices are no longer displayed in the site
preview. It only shows site name and icon and phone. Is this a bug or related to server update delays?

Different countries may have different four preferences for fuel names/types, or similar ones in a different order.
How is user's fuel preference supposed (and observed) to behave whenever crossing a country border?
  1. Keep the first/second/third/fourth preference like it is now,
  2. reset to the first preference,
  3. try to match similar numbers?
I've a feeling that b) could be the reason, why my preference does not stick to my third option, but gets often (just no idea when exactly) reset to the first one? :?

We have an issue with gas prices here in Panama. Gas was always sold per gallon, but not anymore, now it's been sell per liter. So now the price shown by the gas stations is around $1 per liter, when it used to be around $4 per gallon.

Here is where the problem begins. When we try to update the prices in the app, it sends us an error because prices that low doesn't seem correct to Waze.

Also, the prices used to have 2 decimals, but now they have 3 decimals.

So we will appreciate if you can take this into consideration and do the fixing ASAP.

Thanks you for this excellent app!

Welcome to the metrical part of the world, Panama! I have no doubt that Waze can adapt the display/entry issues for Panama sooner or later, but I am very curious about what will happen if you look up gasprices when you are close to the border with a country that (still) uses the imperial system. Will you see only liter-prices or a mix of liters and gallons?

Any problems with Gas prices feature on INTL today evening?
It was working fine till ca. 6 PM CEST (UTC+2) but since then I got error "no nearby station found"
First thought was that particular station was deleted by someone using WME, but then I checked and station is still there. so I tried to report prices for couple of stations around, but the same error.
I've already checked status.waze.com page, but no info.

Anyone else facing troubles?

on top of posting here I am reporting the issue via NanoRep

issue still persist, today morning I've tried to report prices for ~10 gas stations with the error.
screenshot - see OMV station just near me

so to summarize available information:
Gas prices feature is currently not working (unable to report prices, unable to perform GS search) at all at least in Slovakia and Czech Republic (confirmed by several users from various cities in both countries)

I emailed Ori as Support haven't replied to Nanorep ticket I've opened yesterday.
