The Easiest Way to Find the Nearest Gas Station
OMG, your car’s on E
Whoops, you were singing along to the Hamilton soundtrack so hard that you failed to notice you’re down to, like, an eighth of a tank of gas. But you’re in the middle of nowheresville and have no idea where the closest gas station is. Thanks to Google Maps, you can find out in about 2.5 seconds.
What you do: First, pull over. Then open the app and tap the search bar (the spot where you typically plug in your destination’s address). A drop-down menu will automatically appear with a Gas Stations option. Tap it and you’ll access a lengthy list of pumps (gas prices included) in close proximity to you. Pick the nearest one, tap Directions and boom: Turn-by-turn navigation from your current location.
And now? Fuel up and get back on the road.
