As prices continue to fall across the state, there are some counties that are seemingly defying the trend. We have more reader reports that point out, prices are higher in Platte county than are given by GasBuddy.com.
One reader, wrote us to say the prices she’s seeing in her area are averaging $4.75 per gallon, while the average price given for Platte by GasBuddy, is closer to $4.01 per gallon. I have seen these odd mismatches pop up for other counties before, and in most cases as more people report more prices to GasBuddy these anomalies are corrected in a few days to a week.
Other factors to consider are false reports or a lack of user reports. Recently there was one anonymous GasBuddy app contributor in Casper that was repeatedly targeting a particular station with a really low false report. That person soon stopped reporting and prices there returned to normal. These kind of reports can skew a county average up or down.
This probably isn’t the case in Platte County, but let’s see how the reports play out there over the next few days.
