We'll that's the point there are a few like the one I linked to that no longer physically exist, yet somehow the 3rd party manages to update the prices. I would love for you to lose the automatic update of prices from the external resource for these closed stations.

Well, according to @wazemapping, deleting non-existent-station landmarks is ok.

Shirli,

I thought I saw a thread on list of brands, but since this is actively visible, I'll post here for now.

Casey's is known as Casey's, there is a selection for Caseys, but their brand is Casey's, even on their website.

Road Star, I see many gas stations in the region by that name, but I don't know what they are branded as. I don't know who they use for their fuel source, but it is a station here and I don't see any other branding for their fuel sources. Not sure if you wanted to know about that, for adding or not. Thanks!

Now that I'm seeing how it works, there's a lot of brands in the list that really aren't brands.

These are brands:

Alon
Amoco
Citgo
Conoco
Diamond Shamrock
Exxon
Fina
Phillips 66
Shell
Sunoco
Tenneco
Texaco
Union 76

These are not brands, but store/gas station names:
Brothers Food Mart
Discount Zone
Home Depot
Tonys Gasoline
...dozens of others.

I think we need another crack at that list.

BJ's, Costco, Stop & Shop all have branded gas stations, so be careful when editing the list...

Wal-Mart might have gas stations, but it isn't their brand, they use Murphy USA gasoline at those stations.

Hmmm, at Costco (and maybe BJ's, too) you must be a member to buy gas. If we have Costco stations are we going to route someone, anyone, there? Maybe the name ought to be "Costco [Members Only]" or some such ...

I've gotten URs about them NOT being in the Gas Price System, so they should be on the map. I don't have any objections to a "Members Only" tag.

Sam's Club is also in the system and they're members only.
