Google Maps for iOS displays gas prices along your route

The app now helps you save cash when you're on the road.

As if Google Maps wasn't useful enough already, the application is getting yet another handy feature. Today, Google updated its iOS version of the app to show gas prices when people search for stations, making it easy to see how much each location charges for Regular, Midgrade, Premium and even Diesel.

The new functionality, which is currently limited to the US and Canada, will display you that information based on up-to-date pricing, all with a simple tap. It's worth noting Maps for Android has had this since last month, but now iOS users can start taking advantage of it as well.
