problem is, that while standing in front of GS (created long time ago, I've tried 3 different today, for one I put UR) and tapping report gas price we got message No GS nearby. this is for all GS which haven't had price reported yet (those also do not appear in search for GS... those were there yesterday and are not today... resulting in having no GS in my city in the search). for the rest which had prices reported yesterday, everything works fine.

here is screenshot I made yesterday while sitting at home. today I got no results when doing the same...

already reported to support via nanorep. probably already by several users.
you might check Bratislava. we already have few GS with prices and others without, so you will be able to see difference. e.g this one was reported as not available.

just type all digits you need, Waze client will put the decimal dot automatically as the format and value-range is defined for each country. (E.g. here we use 3 decimals, so the price is like 1,469 €. to report that price, it is enough to submit 1469.)

I think you should report this to support. in ideal case, upload relevant screenshots (e.g. how it looks like when you enter the price and how it is displayed after save) somewhere and put links to those screenshots into the support request with detailed description of the problem.

I've just tried to check situation in Lithuania by faking GPS position for Waze client... I've found I was able to enter price for this station: Neste Savanoriu 1 A24, degaline, Neste Lietuva
with price value 1.234. however I was not able to put in price 4.9 or so. based on this it seems that there is price range defined which controls validity of provided information...

it is also possible, that configuration of Gas Prices feature is not based on gas station location, but on user's profile (as I have seen different (slovak) gas types and the price I've entered was indicated as EUR)

so I see two possible issues there:
1. price range is set wrong for Lithuania (seems more likely to me)
2. user's profile indicates other country than Lithuania
and I would suggest to check issue with support or HQ representatives (someone who was managing implementation of gas prices for your country).

Please add a possibility to display ALL Gas stations as icons like Police, Car crash, traffic jam, other wazers, etc.

Seems more like paid ad, not Gas Station.

Any problems with Gas prices feature on INTL today evening?
It was working fine till ca. 6 PM CEST (UTC+2) but since then I got error "no nearby station found"
First thought was that particular station was deleted by someone using WME, but then I checked and station is still there. so I tried to report prices for couple of stations around, but the same error.
I've already checked status.waze.com page, but no info.

Anyone else facing troubles?

on top of posting here I am reporting the issue via NanoRep

issue still persist, today morning I've tried to report prices for ~10 gas stations with the error.
screenshot - see OMV station just near me

so to summarize available information:
Gas prices feature is currently not working (unable to report prices, unable to perform GS search) at all at least in Slovakia and Czech Republic (confirmed by several users from various cities in both countries)

I emailed Ori as Support haven't replied to Nanorep ticket I've opened yesterday.
