I came across a note of you asking how to get more than 975 points per day, from back in December. By answering the weekly poll, you get an additional 100 points, for a total of 1,075 points.
You can also get up to 1,200 points for contacting friends via email. That credit is only good for once as a GasBuddy, but you get 80 points per friend that you contact, up to a max of 15 friends = 1,200 points.

So, to score 30,725 points in 30 days, you need to post, on Day 31, at an earlier time than you posted on Day 1 of the period. That way, the 975 points for the 31st day are counted as part
