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?

Gas price updates from 3rd Party are very wrong

Postby kentsmith9 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 5:02 pm

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2 days ago with one NA, and yesterday one price was accurate with the other 2 wrong, but that might have been just out of date.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.

Today, each station I checked was fine, but 3/6 were updated this morning by another Wazer already.

Checked several stations on my trip the last two days ... all of them that had recently been updated by the "3rd party" had incorrect "N/A" entries, so this problem is still happening.

I haven't seen the problem lately in my area, but the prices also have not, for the most part, changed for a week. I have noted that it seems that any time a price changes, that is when I will see the NA from a 3rd party update. I think something is wrong with the update code, or the 3rd party provider is sending bad data for these changes.

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.

3rd party updates should not reset a price to N/A. So if you updated some grade with a price and the next day it was reset to N/A due to a 3rd party updates, let us know.

Ehud, that is exactly what this thread is all about and we've been doing that since we were asked. I've been documenting the exact station location as well in this thread. What else are you looking for?

Missed your recent post about it. Basically any recent example can help, but I think we have enough from what you posted. I'll let you know if we need more info.

Thanks.

Ok. Great. I'm sure we can continue to post examples as they occur. However, for me, since prices again have not changed in quite some time at most stations, I think that I will not see the problem again until prices do adjust. But as a group, others should be able to post the prices that went NA and the permalink in the editor for the station.
