The much-touted Gas Price functionality is all but worthless to most people. By the time I'm close enough to the gas station for the search to pull it up I can usually already see the price on the sign.

I don't WANT to know the price of gas right next to me, I want to know the price of gas at stations within a couple of miles, specifically within an area I'll be driving anyway. I'll gladly drive a few miles (burning 1/10 gallon, or about $0.30) that may be able to save me $0.10/gallon on a 20-gallon fill-up ($2.00).

Yes, I enter prices into Waze when I fill up, and I've added several stations while editing, but Waze is horrible for finding gas prices in the USA and Canada. Download and use GasBuddy.

I have the same complaint.

Foursquare also has the same problem with searchs for places on waze.

It is not enought in Latvia. We live 30km away from nearest 5 nearest Gas stations. It would be nice to see closest 20 Gas station around current location. Right now I have just "Cannot find Gas stations around". :( This way I don't know to witch city I have to drive.

Two blocks? The OP wanted more than a few miles. If I search for gas stations, I get plenty of results farther than two blocks away, but not as far afield as kwhistles link.
