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.

Ori just replied that they received number of complaints about this issue, and are investigating it.

For the 1st one put N/A for all prices. As they have no prices listed on sign, I wonder someone put price for it.

For 2nd ask Orit (orit@waze.com) for fix

I would just remove it from the editor, or change the name to 'ClOSED'.
But removing it is the easiest, I guess.


I'm not sure, but are US gas stations handled the same way like ROTW? In past they surely weren't and GS database was not linked with landmark DB.

Ok, then deleting landmarks should remove GS. ROW works that way since I remember.
And, on the other hand, I would bet that some newbie will redraw them in month or two. So delete GS landmarks and replace them with "other" landmarks with info about closure.

@Lant1: Sometimes there are such problems with prices on GS near border. I am still waiting for reply from Orit regarding similar issue.
Or there might be incorrect price set on some stations which needs to be deleted first... Try to contact Orit with as many details as possible.

They should change the system for currency and prices from GPS position-based to be based on GS's address (which is already set in landmark). But it is a major change, so small chance they will do it soon...

The option is 4 fuel types in country. If your country coordinators decide to replace one of current types for E85 is solely their choice.
I think this would happen after E85 become widely spread in GS offerings.

I am sorry to say that, most probably, there are better gas prices apps than Waze and I would bet, some of those would have this sorted out already...
