GasBuddy Blog -- It’s that time of year again. A time when people all over the U.S. can come together in harmony to celebrate something so sacred and meaningful to American life and culture that it renders meaningless whatever issues might typically divide us.

Beer is one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, dating possibly as far back as 9500 BC, and it is recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt.

the full screen intertitles when achievement thresholds are reached are waste of time and data.

If it's so good, how come beer manufacturers don't list the ingredients on the labels?

with all the money spent on gimmicks and silly stuff that's useless, how about making the site into an https:// site thus, securing the members' information rather than exposing it any and all?

bring back the options page in the app, esp. the screen rotation lock and the auto open to stations. BUT PLEASE test the app thoroughly before posting the new version.

lots of gimmicks in the app = lots of data being wasted for nothing. Time to start looking for other services that focus on gas prices, not entertainment.

still no screen rotation option (i.e. select "preferred = no screen rotation in settings but allow for all other programs to rotate screen")! Currently, to avoid screen rotation, user must select screen rotation block for all apps. Why not stop putting stupid little gimmicks into the app and go back to your roots and make the app useful for price reporting?

oh yea, silly me! I forgot that GB is no longer in the business of informing consumers about gas prices and financing itself with some ads, but it's in the business of pushing ads to those silly folks who think there's some value in the gas prices reported on the site.

Thanks for something NOT gas or oil related. That nonsense gets real old, real quick. I want cheap gas prices, but I don't want to read boring articles about it.

When was this survey taken? I was never asked!

Gas stations sell crap like Keystone and Corona. You might as well be drinking dirty water.

I have never seen any convenience store that sold craft beer. I have to look for a microbrewery, or specialty store.
