Hello StratusGirl and thank you for your comment. When I joined a few years ago,
I tried to become familiar with all the GasBuddy rules so that I could make responsible posts.
One of the rules stated that since most folks use credit cards to buy their fuel, you should post
the credit price in lieu of a cash price, if one was offered. I had been doing that faithfully, and
been annoyed, as you are, when others posted the cash price. I finally decided to write a complaint to one of these
"rule-breakers," and looked up the rule so I could quote it to them verbatim. Imagine my surprise when I found the
rule has CHANGED! The CASH price is now preferred! I don't agree with it; I think the previous "credit" rule was
better. However, I started just last week to post the cash prices and I don't blame you, and others, for being annoyed.
I found this new rule in the FAQ section.
