The app called Gasbuddy is the one used by the most people. I have it on both my iPhone and iPad

Two stations have recent reports for Mammoth Lakes on GasBuddy. The two apps look almost identical. Both are dependent on consumers reporting prices, so unpopular or remote stations are less likely to have recent reports. Once I'm familiar with a region I find that the cheapest stations to seek out and most expensive stations to avoid almost never change over time. For the Sierra, I try to top off in the foothills on the westside and aim to fill up in Gardnerville, Bishop, or from Olancha south on the Eastside. Most importantly, I avoid buying gas in town in Bridgeport.
