Are gasbuddy's "Top Spotters" liars, or am I misunderstanding something about gas stations?
I just moved to a new city and I was happy to have found good mid-grade and premium prices at a gas station near my house, according to my gasbuddy app. When I got there, I found that the regular price was correct at $3.73/gallon, but the mid-grade (gasbuddy had it at $3.83) and premium (gasbuddy $3.88) DID NOT EXIST. Instead, the gas station (a BP station) had "Ultimate" and something else, undoubtedly with "Super" in the name (I can't remember since I drove off without buying any gas) and both of those were $4.03 and $4.33!! I put good gas in my car as it is - I don't need to be jacked for an additional 45 cents a gallon.
So why are people on gasbuddy listing A.) fuel types that aren't offered by the gas station, at B.) prices that don't exist? What gives?
