Naturally, the station I saw problems with this morning had correct prices. It didn't show who last updated them though.

Gas prices in my area are usually wrong, but the app Gas Buddy is also always wrong. I am updating prices 10x a day

I had a similar occurrence today at two separate Sunoco stations in my area. Had a wrong price for regular, and all three other grades showed NA as in Not Available as in Fuel Type not offered.

Who is this 3rd party and how are they trashing good gas prices and replacing them with bad info?

Same issues here, most gas stations have a single has grade "updated" and all other data is N/A. Some stations are all N/A.
All "3rd party" updates too.

Now that I'm keeping an eye on it, I'm not seeing any problems. In going to keep the station closest to my house updated and see if any incorrext 3rd party prices come in.

Now that I'm back to updating that Kwik Fill and the Arrow Mart near my house, they haven't been getting 3rd-party prices in, so there haven't been any errors lately. ;)

Problems appeared again today. Some of the same stations. I didn't pass all the same stations, so I don't know if all the same ones have the issue. All these prices were OK yesterday.

Every time I see the 3rd party updates it has some of the fuels as N/A.
