You’re running late for an interview, but that little gas light on your dash has been on… for well… too long. You reroute Google Maps to the nearest gas station and start to fill up—and that’s when you notice the gas across the street is 25 cents cheaper. When you finally close the tank, re-type the original address into your phone and get on the road again, you’re short 15 minutes and $5.
Over the next few weeks, we’re rolling out an update to Google Maps on Android that will make your next gas stop more convenient and affordable. Now you can check out gas prices and add detours to your route, without having to exit out of navigation.
