Automatic tells us how much is spent on gas. My question is how does it do this without knowing how much you paid per gallon ? It would be nice if the software was modified to put in the price of gas each time we fill up.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your your question. Please see this FAQ, which explains how we calculate the price of your trips. While you can't currently enter your gas price manually, this is a feature we hope to add in the future.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, we'd be happy to help. :)

Apparently the app is not working as you describe for the longest time it has shown to price of gas to be $4.45!!

It has been a long long time since it was that high. So ... The app is not averaging the price of gas in this region.
