Ethgasstation and similar websites estimate proper Gas Price based on current state of Ethereum network. Is there any way of using working with Geth/web3 to estimate proper Gas Price? and similar to this, how about estimate Gas Limit?

1 Answer 1


You can use getBlock on the latest block in Web3 to get back the gas limit of that block:


gasLimit - Number: The maximum gas allowed in this block.

You are probably pretty safe to use that gas limit on the next transaction you want to create.

Web3 also has a gas price oracle as documented here:


Returns the current gas price oracle. The gas price is determined by the last few blocks median gas price.
