All big box stores require you to be a member to buy their products. I'm thankful Gas Buddy shows EVERY option out there. How else would I know my local Sam's Club is a good 6 cents cheaper than the rest?

Because the gasoline distributors dictate gas prices in my area, Sam's is no cheaper than the nearby stations. I can buy gas cheaper at a BP station near my neighborhood.

The big box stores (including Sam's) have the lowest gas prices in my area but you are required to be a member to purchase from them.

.....

And your point is...?

So become a member or stop whining about it...always going to be someone who wants something for nothing.

This is crazy. Sam's Club and Cosco have the cheapest prices in my area. That helps to keep all of the other stations around them low or close to their prices. Why would you want them to be boycotted from Gas Buddy? If you are jealous than buy a membership and you can get the savings from the gas.

Not all Sams are member only. In this area anyone can get fuel there but members and those with Walmart gift cards get a discount.

All the price gougers would love it if the membership clubs were forbidden from posting. Their prices help keep the local prices in check.
I buy at Costco's, but I pass many, and I look for the cheapest Costco.

Everyone knows Costco or Sam's club are for members only

My Sam's Club has the best local prices an based on MPG has gasoline equal to the best.

Kroger usually has the same prices but poorer MPG. Kroger diesel is OK. Sadly Sam's doesn't have diesel.

Sam's is the only station here with a price different than all the others.
The state has investigated price fixing here for 30 years, but can't seem to nail them.
Sam's came to town and sold gas 5-10 cents cheaper than all the others.
Now, Sam's is about 2-4 cents cheaper, but I have a Holiday 5 cents off card, so I buy from them.
I don't like the huge Sam's and Walmart company, but when the local gas stations are gouging you, you need to make them suffer by buying from someone else.

. Sam's Club and Costco usually have some of the lowest prices, usually below average, so they help bring gas prices down... but, around here, there are usually non-membership and free-membership stations with even a bit lower prices, so I don't buy any memberships...

. I think the main reason nowadays for membership stores/stations is THEFT by people with ADDICTIONS/STUPIDITY... businesses these days need to know just WHO exactly is in their stores... THEFT massively increases the COSTS for a business... THEFT also increase the COSTS for courts and judges that all the rest of us have to pay for to deal with THEFT...

Today 5 stations have lower prices than our local Sam's.

Checked another AR Sam's, 60 miles from here, 13 stations are lower than Sam's. 3 stations are 6 cents lower!

Yesterday in a neighboring city I saw a Sam's that does sell to non-members, but non-members pay a nickel more per gallon. That's still a bargain in that area.

I don't get the point of your rant. The only reason that Sam's Club or any other gas station is on GB is because somebody like you put them there.

As far as needing a Sam's membership to buy their gas, this is no different than BJs or Costco.

The bottom line is that the purpose of GB is to allow people to post the prices of all gas stations so that others can see where it is the cheapest then decide who they will buy from.
