Q: Why isn’t the gas prices button displaying any content? It also doesn’t do anything when I tap it.
If you are seeing a gas prices button on your app, but nothing is happening when you tap it and there is a blank space on the button itself, you need to update your app. The latest version of the CAA App for Mobile and for iPad should display local gas prices directly in that button and should display a map with gas prices when the button is selected.

The button will display gas station unavailable when your location services have not been enabled. Please enable your location services and close the app. When you return to the screen your gas station should be listed.
