The Windows Phone app GasBuddy has been updated to version 2.0. GasBuddy helps find the best gas prices in your location and allows you to report gas prices for others to take advantage of.
The updated version brings:
- Directions provided by BING Maps
- Easier gas price posting
- An auto completion feature for searches
- User awards/achievements
- Improved GPS performance
The update also includes the customary bug fixes/performance improvements.
GasBuddy has a free membership option that allows you report local gas prices. In doing so, you earn points that can be redeemed for chances to win free gas. If you don't want to sign up for a membership, you can still use the Windows Phone app to find the best gas prices in your area. You can search for gas prices by city, state, zip code or just tap the gas pump icon to pull up prices based on your current location.
We've only tinkered with GasBuddy for a short time but it looks like an easy way to help save gasoline costs. GasBuddy currently covers the U.S. and Canadian markets and is a free, ad-supported app that you can grab here (opens in new tab) at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
Thanks, Jed, for the tip!

GasBuddy was one of the 1st Apps I had on my phone way back when we had 5,000 apps to pick from so this is great to see it featured again. I use this app on nearly every trip I have gone on and it usually works to save me anywhere from $1.00 to $3.00 each time. I can see very easily that I just need to go one exit further and I can save 5 cents a gallon, or stop at the current exit because it only goes up! Great time AND money saver! Highly suggest joining the community and updating prices when you get the chance. Without the community the app is worthless.
GasBuddy is an app everyone should have if you live in the U.S. Or Canada... A must have for WP users.
Great app, and great service. The new version adds a lot and looks/performs great. Only thing missing from the Android version is marking favorite stations. Otherwise kicks ass.
BTW, that white/blue themed pic in the screenshots above is the old version, the new one is red on black like the others.
The blue theme is actually the new app as well. The look of the app changes based on your phone's theme and accent color :D
That is actually super cool! I don't know many apps that change based on the theme, and more should! (Weave's changes a little bit)
This is rad. I am rad. A perfect match! :) It doesn't do landscape mode, which is my only complaint and a minor one at that. Thank you!
It's a great app, I've been beta testing for a month or so. I'm a hardcore GasBuddy member! Just remember - REPORT prices too!!
One of the first apps I downloaded. Update look great!
Thumbs up GasBuddy!!!
Great new look, gas buddy is easy to use and will save you money by finding cheapest gas near you
Two years later since the last update. Pitiful.
