Now a new feature lets you track and share the cheapest gas prices in the area!

Waze, the popular social GPS and live traffic app now has real-time gas prices updated by drivers. By working together, drivers can keep each other informed about the prices at the pumps this summer and find the cheapest gas along their route.

There are over 19 million downloads of the Waze app. FOX 5 is the exclusive Waze partner in the Washington, D.C. region. Download the Waze app and join the FOX 5 Wazer group to contribute to Julie Wright's traffic reports.

How it Works:

Finding cheap gas has never been easier! With the Waze app open, just search for gas in the new category menu and see real-time prices nearby. What if prices look different when you get to the pump? No problem, you can update them right in the app!

Other New Features Include

  • Waypoints: Navigate the way you do in real life, with stops along the way.
  • Category Search: Find local gas stations, parking lots, and car repair shops along your route.
  • Inbox: Save updates from the community.

So, how does Waze work?

After typing in their destination address, users just drive with the app open on their phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data, but they can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a 'heads-up' about what's to come.

In addition to the local communities of drivers using the app, Waze is also home to an active community of online map editors who ensure that the data in their areas is as up-to-date as possible.
