Is it possible to see the average cost for a gallon of gas next to each trip? I can see how much each trip costs me but when the same trip costs me almost 20 cents more (same score, same route) I'd like to know if it was because gas prices went up rather than speculate. Maybe this can be an app thing as well.

Unfortunately my car doesn't report fuel level but it'd be cool to get the average cost for a gallon of gas when the tank is refilled and use that average until the next fill up but defaulting to the daily average if fuel level isn't reported for drivers like me.

Or, additionally, include an option for everyone to input a gas price to base past and future trips from. Price of gas consumed at the moment of the trip can be preserved but it'd be a simple way to compare routes against each other for fuel savings over the course of a few months, a year or longer.

Thanks for the feedback, Alex. Right now, the app doesn’t show the price per gallon, but your idea makes a lot of sense when analyzing fuel costs over a period of time. As you mentioned, it would be helpful to know if the increase in trip cost was due to driving style or an increase in the fuel price itself. We are planning to implement manual fuel price entry in a future update to the app, so I’ll be sure to pass this feedback along to the team.
