I noticed a similar occurrence last Thursday for the Shell station at 7111 Crain Hwy, Bowie, MD.

I just noticed a Chevron station this morning which had "NA" for the mid and premium grade, which definitely had prices last week. Last updated by 3rd party.

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.

Hi kentsmith9,


Does any 3rd party gas price updates is inaccurate?
Does it happens in specific stations/area?


Thanks,


Ori

N/A usually means not applicable and NOT Not Available, which could be percieved as they don't have the price for those 2 fuelgrades.

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.

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2 days ago with one NA, and yesterday one price was accurate with the other 2 wrong, but that might have been just out of date.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 time I see the 3rd party updates it has some of the fuels as N/A.
