user ratings and reviews

Today we introduce the first GasBuddy quarterly report card revealing how gas station convenience stores stacked up in the first quarter of 2017. Wisconsin-based Kwik Trip ranked #1 in five out of the six categories.

Methodology
The GasBuddy smartphone app downloads have grown to more than 64 million. GasBuddies have filed nearly 1.5 million reviews (6.8 million individual ratings) since the launch of the feature in September, covering more than 140,000 retail locations where gasoline is sold. GasBuddy’s data science team compiled the findings by examining the ratings and reviews between Jan 1 – March 31, 2017, only considering convenience stores with more than 30 retail locations. The most popular of the five categories is the “overall” category, with 54 percent of GasBuddies saying they had a “positive” experience versus 9 percent who expressed a negative experience.
