This is going to be very difficult. In our quite small country the prices can differ up to ~25% between small unbranded station hidden in a village and and larger station near border. And I don't count the seasonal changes in it. I would need to set a very relaxed range which would filter out only typo errors like 3.50 instead of 35.00.

Hello Shira,

how often do you expect (or will allow) Waze countries to modify these ranges? If e.g. twice a year would be appropriate, then we could set the bounds tight enough (+- 0.20-0.30 €), in order to prevent mistypes and/or abuse, and regularly update them as necessary. Otherwise the bound are, IMHO, useless, especially in the mentioned form 1.000-2.999.

There can be a problem with per-country limits: particular country might have timely stable prices, but different in various regions.

I would rather prefer some automatic boundary checking according to some average prices in the neighborhood (like 50 km radius and/or 50 nearest stations) and I think that such check is already in use.

LPG prices can be very different around here. I have seen them aslow as 65 cts, way below Robin's minimum...

For the USA, something like this may be reasonable for all grades:

Minimum - $2.00 per gallon
Maximum - $6.00 per gallon

The prices vary by a large amount by region and also the prices are highly volatile. I added this info to the linked form.

Shira - Can you hide email addresses on the form when clicking 'show previous responses'? That information should be private for Waze only.

Although gas pricing is not activated yet in Austria I have added ranges in Euro-Cents from 120 to 180 for Diesel, Normal and Super 95 and a 10 cent higher margin for Super Plus 98. Should work for the next 2 years

Hi

In Panama, we recently change the measuring system and now we are fully metric, so now gas is sold in liters instead of gallons, how can we change the this in order to report gas prices, because the app keep expecting the price in gallons.

thanks
