Google is Giving Away Free Gas Today in California
Google recently rolled out several updates to its Maps app, including support for multiple destinations—a long-demanded feature that’s perfect for long, complicated trips. Google is celebrating, appropriately, with a “road trip” between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Drive that route today, and you can score some free gas, food, and coffee. The giveaways, as reported by the L.A. Times, are in just the kind of out-of-the-way spots that Google Maps (or, for that matter, most smartphone maps) makes it easier to explore. The free gas is being offered at a Shell station in Nipton, California, just north of the Mojave National Preserve. Only two pumps will be running, though, so there’s a good chance a line will form—even in the middle of the desert.
