We know that Dashers are always looking for ways to reduce their costs while dashing, with 93% of Dashers surveyed saying that fuel costs are top of mind while dashing. As part of DoorDash’s ongoing work to support Dashers, we’re proud to announce a new integration with GasBuddy that allows Dashers to find the most affordable gas in their area, directly in the Dasher app.
How does it work?
The GasBuddy integration will allow Dashers to see gas prices near them in real-time and navigate directly to the most affordable gas stations without leaving their Dasher app. Look for the gas pump icon on the map screen to access your local options.
What to expect?
GasBuddy will display all gas stations available within a 2 mile radius, allowing for the quickest and most affordable option to be discovered and navigated to. Dasher’s can optimize their time and money with this feature to ensure they’re getting the best price in their immediate area.
This is extremely helpful for us Dashers, especially with skyrocketing inflation occurring in our economy
Because I drive so much with DoorDash, I'm always looking for the best gas prices in San Francisco, and sometimes catch myself driving around for 15-30 minutes to find a gas station with the cheapest gas, many times going outside of San Francisco to fill up. This program will help me find one without going out my way.
