New MapQuest App Helps Drivers Find Best Gas Prices
DENVER -- MapQuest launched its new Gas Prices mobile app for Android and Apple devices this week. The free app will help drivers find the cheapest gas in their area from their smartphones.
App features include the ability to find the lowest-priced gas in the area; frequent price updates; the ability to sort stations based on price and distance, and add locations as "Favorites"; individual pricing for regular, mid-grade, premium, diesel and E85 gas; and voice-guided directions to gas stations courtesy of the existing MapQuest Navigation app.
MapQuest has promised to update prices without relying on user reports, unlike competing app Gas Buddy, according to a WebProNews report.
