Google Is Coming To Your Local Gas Station

I don’t know if you had a chance to read about this in the news, but Google is expanding services and it is coming to a gas station near you.

"The Associated Press is reporting that a new line of gas pumps from Gilbarco Veeder-Root, due to ship next month, will be equipped with a touch-screen panel that includes a slightly stripped-down version of Google Maps to let you browse local attractions like hotels, amusement parks, and restaurants that have been handpicked by the gas station's owner."

All the attractions that that you find through the gas station touch-screen panel are printable on the spot. 3500 gas stations are enrolled in the first stage of the project. Customer demand and popularity of the new service will be the factors to influence future expansion.
