HURRICANE IRMA:
GasBuddy Adds Diesel Availability to Fuel Tracker;
Helps Fleet Drivers, Truckers and Motorist Affected by Hurricane Irma

GasBuddy, the popular smartphone app connecting motorists to crowdsourced gas station data and information, has added DIESEL availability to help consumers affected by hurricane-related fuel outages.

The GasBuddy tracker alerts motorists to nearby stations and provides information on fuel availability, price, power outages and other essential services at these stations. Now motorist will be able to filter through diesel as well.

HOW IT WORKS
When a motorist is near a station that has no gas or power, and now no diesel, the GasBuddy app will automatically display NO GAS or NO POWER and NO DIESEL icons next to the station on the list screen, and the station will be highlighted in red on the map screen.

Consumers are encouraged to report the status at any gas station to help others. This tool is also available on the web via http://tracker.gasbuddy.com.

GasBuddy will continue to send in-app push notifications to consumers on gas prices and availability in affected areas.
