High gas prices can be a real pain when traveling or even on your way to your daily job. Finding a fuel-efficient route is good, but you’ll end up needing gas. You can use Google Maps to find the cheapest gasoline near you.
Google Maps on iPhone, iPad, Android and the web can not only guide you to the nearest gas station, but also tell you the price of gas. It’s very easy to check and you don’t need any specialized apps for it.
First, open the Google Maps app or website and search for “petrol near me” or tap the “petrol” shortcut.
Search for “Gas” in Google Maps.
Mobile apps display gas prices directly on the map. You can scroll the map to view it or drag it horizontally across the maps at the bottom of the screen.
