I was wondering where the correct place to post suggested features would be.

I like the Gas Prices feature a lot, but would like to see two elements added.

First, to tag three gas stations as favorites that stay at the top of the list.

Second, add operating hours or ability to filter down to 24 hour gas stations only.

How can I get these features added?

Thanks!

Petrol prices have just launched here (New Zealand) too. My first attempt at adding them today, and I get the message 'sorry you cannot report gas prices as you are a waze baby' (which I'm not) - anyone else have this problem?

Please check and enable gas station prices in Russia - it's about 2500-2700 major brand gas stations, most of them already on map (I hope).

Waze has not disclosed the 3rd party in regards to the USA gas prices. Some is of think it could be YP (Yellow Pages) or the source that YP uses.

I hate to recommend this - Workaround for these issues, just use Gas Buddy. It just works... :)

So why doesn't the gas "partner" for the USA want to receive the data that Wazers are entering? This would presumably give them more data and eliminate the problem where the third party data is overwriting the Wazer entered data each day.

thePunishERD wrote: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?

I can think of schemes where a gasstation-owner would want to manipulate prices in his neighborhood and Waze would want to detect that,to prevent such cheating. Or someone does inaccurate pricing, driving by, and thus create systematic errors. It is perfectly possible to detect such "errors" using comparison of historical data and there should be no need to hold up the publishing for confirmation. After some time it would get noticed that often the price is wrong anyway and the user could be blocked (or better: ignored).
