Not sure about exactly how they are handled in ROW, but the US gas station landmarks are what are used for updating prices in the US. This was enabled April 14, 2013.

In addition, I have found quite a few gas stations in my area that are displaced as much as half a mile from their actual locations. Does moving the gas station landmark result in correct navigation, or is the incorrect position "sticky?"

All gas station info in the app is live connected to the editor. In tests, in fact, you can add a new station and immediately find it in the app. Seriously, it's immediate.

As for the search location, we've made Waze aware that the search location hasn't matched the actual landmark, and they are surpised. I haven't tested this recently, though. They are supposed to match completely, but there may be a bug in the system.

Maybe the already-existing "Issues and Requests" forum which exists also under App and Editor forums?

In the US, we have no currently ability to effect gas station adds or changes. We hope someday... but because Waze and a 3rd party are "tied" together, I am unsure how they may go about giving us this ability.

In Brazil, we use the comma as decimal delimiter instead of the point. The Waze for IOS does not accept comma to update fuel prices...

Are you using v 3.2.2.0?

EDIT: Disregard. I believe this is still a known issue as someone already posted about price entry problems for Brazil in the official feedback thread for v3.2.2.0.
