Just wondering, and yes I've read your post, how many times do we need to have a new thread started saying "Gas Buddy is slow..." Can't anyone wait a little, or think that it may be their service provider that's a problem? I mean I know points are a life and death issue, but can't the patient hang on a little before noting that the system is slow and then feeling it's necessary to start a post immediately to let the world know? And do we really need everyone else to chime in "Me too...it's slow" or "Not here...it's normal speed" without providing any computer, operating system, ISP, etc., information?

Flaring is a part of regular operations. It can happen for many reasons, mostly safety related. I strongly suspect Chevron's communication was directed to the local community around the Richmond refinery. Doubt it had anything to do with your price increases. I'd check the crude oil price trends on the site as the likely source. There has been an increase since April 5th.

Great comment on the crowd sourcing...I agree, the wrong prices we may see are inconsequential to their data collection for the business side.

Excellent comment, GoGo'! "So declared National Geographic... b/c that magazine & it's editorial staff know everything about everything right? Let's see them put together the next issue, type set it, & print it all by hand in offices lit by candles. Don't use any power or any products manufactured by or made from oil." Well thought out! I add: China is the largest manufacturer of Solar Panels. And they are not producing these in factories run by Wind Turbines & Solar Power either! Care 2 B bud's? ~drill'

Thanks for the information

Wanted to say your member photo gave me a chuckle. Not to brag, I filled up at $1.93 today here in NJ where self-serve is outlawed.

Doesn't make sense, but I see it all over town. One of the worst offenders is the "Shameful Shell" at Olympic & Fairfax, where regular gas is $4.999 now - used to be $5-something. And get this - I spotted them getting a tanker of United Oil once - cheap stuff!!! There are a couple of 76 stations in Beverly Hills that always charge the max for gas - $4.399 regular at Crescent & Santa Monica Blvd. Guess the owners aren't interested in volume sales, but I see suckers in there filling up all the time.

Think the 76 at Oxnard & Hazeltine was owned by AAA Petroleum. They own other 76 stations in the Valley, but the company is on hard times. AAA 76 at Vineland/Vanowen in North Hollywood has closed down! The company appears to be getting what it can and I suspect all the stations will close, be sold or rebranded in the near future. Red Dot on Sherman and Hayvenhurst is turning into a Chevron as I write, and Chevron also took over some low-volume 76 stations around the Valley (Oxnard/Woodman, Laurel Cyn/Strathern).
