They are quite popular in the US... Some grocery stores even have them where you earn gas discounts by buying your groceries - both at the Supermarket Branded Gas Station and other big name partner Gas Stations

[edit]
Aaargh! I just realize that there will not be ONE bonuscard involved but MANY. 5c here, 8c there. Ugh. Guess my answer to my own question.


I wasn't saying that we should add it to the app... Waze can't do everything... What would Waze do when I get a free soda with fillup?

Thanks! I found this link after

Gas prices feature finally started in Lithuania today. First try - first disappointment. Client says:
Sorry, but the prices you entered don't seem to be valid.

I tried to enter some price for LPG instead of N/A, but it didn't help

First 95, then 98, than diesel and then LPG.
Maybe you'll find the corrupt one then.


I tried. about 5 times it didn't help and you know what? I got my first gas price points for accidentally entered prices N/A N/A N/A and, you will not believe, N/A :idea:
I continued to enter various prices and it was may be 21st try and - success :D Since that moment Waze said nothing about validity of prices.
I guess Waze has some average prices, and at the starting point they are 0,00 , so

I'm not sure, but my point is: why to wait? just try and try (and try) :geek: and you will take your success :mrgreen:

Thank you for testing "porubcan" :) (thank you Shirlig, too ;) )

porubcan wrote:I've found I was able to enter price for this station: Neste Savanoriu 1 A24, degaline, Neste Lietuva
with price value 1.234. however I was not able to put in price 4.9 or so. based on this it seems that there is price range defined which controls validity of provided information...
it is also possible, that configuration of Gas Prices feature is not based on gas station location, but on user's profile (as I have seen different (slovak) gas types and the price I've entered was indicated as EUR)

Yes you really entered 1.23 and it is in Lt, not EUR :

As you can see now everything is o.k. and we can enter real prices. :D
Thanks again for you and Shirlig and Waze . :D

Why did you take gas prices out of the navigation section, its a pain to have to use two different buttons to do something that worked well before it was FIXED into something else. I sure wish you weren't so greedy.

I support this request. And also the request to specify quantity already put down on the map gas stations

Gas prices seem to be working in Canada now, except my iphone version of the app forces the price to end in 9, which isn't always accurate.
