No. The only purpose for gap insurance is to make up the difference between what you owe and the value of the car, and this comes into play only if you put a small down payment and drive away from the dealer upside down...
If your amount that you owe is about equal to the car's value, than gap would be a waste of time.

Where would one buy gap insurance? I'm trying to find a reputable widely known and used gap insurance vendor. Geico doesn't offer gap insurance which is my insurance company.

for a car you own or are shopping for? Dealers typically offer it. Just make sure you negotiate down the price because it is also typically expensive.

My CU ( DCU) offered gap insurance for 1 time payment of $250 to $300. But I ended up taking GAP from the dealer as he did a price match to this price - $250. The initial quote he gave me was $750.

Progressive does. Saved me a lot of hassle when my first car was destroyed. I thought all insurances offered gap.
