And showing the gas price in white in a super bright green background in the gas prices map view is completly unreadable!!!

Hmm, is anyone else missing gas price features (comparison & update) since the latest 3.7.3 waze app? Using Waze in Belgium and it's gone now (from the menu, from the settings section, etc)..

Even more interesting, where "Gas stations" was replaced with "Asphalt" , I just removed and reinstalled the app again. Gas-prices are back... :-o

I now also have other voices for navigation (flemish) that weren't there before... seems like previous updates didn't update everything ?

Hi,
Is there any valid range of gas prices?
IM trying to update ethanol prices in Brazil (Alcool), but it returns me uh-oh error (the prices you entered don't seen to be valid)
When I use lower values ( below 1,000) it is accepted ( the price is about 1,750).
If I use smaller steps (i.e. 1,000 and so 1,250, and so 1,500) I can
reach 1,510.
Already tried change language, change phone ( apple, Android).
The problem is always related to ethanol. Gasoline is ok.

In my perfect world, the gas price feature would be handled by something more robust, like GasBuddy. I used this very often before getting Waze; there's more of a community updating prices there than there is on Waze, at least in my area.

I don't mind updating incorrect prices, knowing that Waze's native price feature isn't where it needs to be yet. My gripe is that I use Waze in landscape mode, mounted to a dashboard bracket. The interface on my Samsung Galaxy S III for price input is clunky, slow, and very ugly. The first time I tried it I thought something was wrong, and I input the same price for all fuel grades.

Is there anything that can be done about stations that are gouging customers? Example - at two stations near the Orlando airport, all grades of gas are currently just under $6.00 per gallon. Just a block away in the other direction from the airport, regular gas is currently $3.459 a gallon, about the same as it is all over the county. By trial and error, I was able to work out that the highest price Waze would allow me to enter was $4.369 per gallon. I hope that's high enough to get the attention of any Wazers looking for gas in the area.

By the way, before I did the update, the price in Waze for both of these stations was $3.069. I have seen newspaper (or web) articles on these stations indicating that someone is monitoring public gas listings for the station and changing them when anyone enters an accurate price. Since I work around the corner from these stations, I'd like to see if I can at least get the correct price out regularly, but others have a much stronger incentive to report lower prices than I do to report the correct price, so it will be interesting to see if I can make a difference.
