The Marathon at the corner of SR 26 & US 31 in Kokomo, IN had only regular listed yesterday evening. I know they carry all three grades, and I believe diesel, too. https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 3,16483962 I note there's no address for this station, either, though I've seen them in others screen caps. Actually, I don't recall seeing addresses for any of the stations I've updated here in Central Indiana.

I'm seeing the same thing in NJ. I'll update prices then the next day, 3rd party updates them and N/A's the mid and premium prices. Is 3rd party a bot experiment gone bad?

I've seen the same thing. It'll say that the gas prices were updated by 3rd party X days ago. And the price on Waze is higher than it is at the station. This is impossible because for the past month, prices have been steadily climbing and the particular station I check frequently hasn't lowered their price even a penny since the price increases started.

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

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.

Maybe I missed some threads on the incoming 3rd party updates on gas stations, but two stations in the last two days have shown in the client app the price for only one or two fuel types with the rest as N/A. In one case the actual price listed at the station was correct on the two prices provided. The other case was at least $0.05 per gallon different on the few they provided.

I can see if the 3rd Party only had new data for two of the prices then they should leave the other two alone, but to say N/A indicates it is Not Available and that is somewhat useless.

I had completely wrong data at one station 2 days ago with one NA, and yesterday one price was accurate with the other 2 wrong, but that might have been just out of date. At least yesterday there were no NA when they had that fuel.

Every station I find with 3rd party updates will have N/A when they do have the fuel grade listed, but for the grades they do list they are no longer really that far off.
