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.

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.

Would it work to leave the existing landmark but change the category from gas to something else?

I had a Shell station nearby close, but they left the prices on the sign so people kept updating the station. It also generated several user requests to delete the landmark, which I did.

Now it's slated to reopen and I'll have to redraw it and re enter all the address info and hope that the automated system doesn't add it in the wrong location (again).

In the last few days, when selecting a Gas Station to navigate to, the "Info" tab is unavailable:
Oops! Something went wrong. We're working on it right now ..."

What is the proper etiquette regarding cash/credit price differentials at gas stations? I see a few stations on my way to/from work that always seem to have the cash price listed, some others the credit price. I would imagine there are probably also some that flip between the two several times during the same day.

In the US, they ask us to post the cash price.

Hi. Please fix the fuel price updating feature! I have successfully updated one gas station during the last 3 months, the other attempts results in an error message saying "the price does not seem to be correct". This has occurred on several different gas stations, with different brands and locations.

@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.
