GasBuddy: App helps drivers find gas

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Fuel is moving into Florida, but the app GasBuddy shows nearly half the stations in major cities lacking gas.

Executives from the app were touring the State Emergency Center this week. GasBuddy was designed to help motorists find the cheapest fuel, but when storms started hitting, the company quickly realized its users could help pinpoint shortages.

The program lists a station as green if it has gas and power, yellow if fuel is limited, and black if there is no power.

Availability and prices posted come from input from the app's users and they're accurate only at the time of the post.
