Google Now starts showing gas stations along your route

Google already has ways to find gas stations before you hit the open road, but it hasn't usually offered relevant stations. Wouldn't you want to see pumps that don't require a big detour? You might not have that problem from now on. Numerous drivers have noticed that Google Now is showing a "gas stations on your route" card that highlights fill-ups based on the direction you're driving. The feature isn't all that practical when you're the one behind the wheel, but it could help your passengers point out those much-needed pit stops well before your tank runs empty. Let's just hope this eventually applies to charging stations as well -- EV drivers need love, too.
