Hi

In Switzerland, many gas stations are covered. Still, I can not enter the prices. When should this feature be turned on for Switzerland?

Thanks

Gas prices should save update date individually.

So I could update just today the diesel price and keep older prices from other gas types.

We have mapped about 1600 stations in a month and are now on 74%, and waiting for activation.

I agree.

Too often I see reports which only include the Regular price, or only the Regular and Diesel prices, because almost all stations in the area show only these on their signs. When someone updates only the Regular and Diesel prices, the Plus and Premium prices are overwritten, even if they haven't changed more than a couple cents in a week.

This wouldn't have been such a problem five years ago, when plus was universally 10¢ more and premium 20¢ more than regular, but times have changed. Some stations add about 15¢ for plus and 30¢ more for premium, but some set the prices seriously high, with plus some 50¢ higher than regular and premium some 70¢ higher. Having even week-old prices would allow those who require premium gas to determine which stations gouge and which don't.

It should be not hard to implement this.
If there is an entry with gastype:price:date it should be easy to show it on app client.
The Wazer is already choosing the gas type to be shown in the gas stations search.

Glad to be on the forums again!

Recently Waze has added Gas Station prices as one of the crowd sourced features it offers to its millions of Wazers around the world.

* We currently don't have the Gas prices feature available in Canada.
</snip>


Is this still the case? Is the Gas prices feature still not available in Canada? I ask due to the age of the original post but no updated information in the original post (and with 19 pages of posts it's hard to skim through them all to see).

I can post gas prices in Canada but unfortunately the price format is the US type.
