Toronto's gas predictions website?

Hi - does any one know what happened to the website that shows gas price predictions for 2,3 and 5 days? I had it bookmarked (tomorrowsgaspricetoday.com), and the website changed. Can't find it anywhere.

All searches lead back to gasbuddy.com but that's not the website I was at before ....

Thanks.

On their FB page, TGPT states that it will (did) shutdown on May 30. It endorses and automatically forwards users to GasBuddy.com, but that website does not have price predictions. I don't know of any website that does. Too bad, TGPT will be missed.

Thanks, I don't go on FB so I didn't know. Yes, the previous website was my favorite :(

Here's a gas tip for everyone:
Go to a Pioneer gas station because they've chosen to be at least 3 cents less than everyone else.
OR
Go to the Esso (with On the run) gas station that is the closest to a Pioneer gas station.
You'll get Esso gas for between 3-5 cents less than any other Esso gas station because they chose to compete with Pioneer's gas prices. (most likely the same price as the Pioneer station, great if Esso gas is preferred)

You can easily predict your own gas prices. Drive around at different times of the day and note the gas prices, know the areas closest to you where gas is cheaper.

First off, certain areas of the GTA always have lower gas prices (like 4-8c cheaper!) than anywhere else. A certain area of Oshawa for example, north western Brampton another. There are probably others. Not sure why but always cheaper in those "special" areas--maybe politicians of petroleum execs live there? lol

Gas prices are typically 2-3c cheaper at night--like 11pm-4am, in my area anyway.

Certain days of the week always have cheaper gas prices. Again in my area it's usually Thursdays.

Combine your above observations. For where I live it comes down to either getting gas on Thursday nights after 11 or so, or driving 20 minutes to the other side of Brampton (usually I go with the former unless I have to go the other way for other reasons).

LOL what? What would that get them? (I.e. what benefit would it give someone to do something like that?) Are these shills for a gas station or something? Because the demand for gasoline is so straight-line, there's really little to be gained in doing something like that. The vast majority of people don't go to gas stations based on what's 2-3c cheaper. Some people do, sure, but most just go to what's convenient or whatever happens to be close by when their vehicle is near empty. There's really not much business to be gained by spoofing numbers on gasbuddy, and basically all it takes is someone else updating after the alleged "fake price" is listed to change it.

I did no understand all your strategy, so let me ask you... are you sayin' that you would "drive around at different times of the day" and then drive 20 minutes just to get cheaper gas?

It sounds like you are putting too much time, effort, and fuel into this! Are you actually saving anything?

i mean one would typically drive around their neighborhood at different times of the day in regular day to day life anyway.

you can note the gas prices while doing other things, you dont need to literally go out driving around town for a month tracking gas stations.


To another poster, why would they fake gasbuddy? because they can, and its not updated as frequently as you would think. i get burned alot locally. with 5 gas stations in walking distance they all fk around it seems.

I understand Tomorrow gas prices today merged with Gas buddy. However since the sites merged I can't find the tomorrow gas price prediction section on Gas buddy's website. Anyone got a link?
