This novelty is not only in Spain, but started arriving a few days ago to everyone, and its operation has no mystery. We already know that many things can be done in the browser, and it is that within Google Maps we can search by types of premises, shops and buildings.
In the case of gas stations, apart from seeing other elements such as the hours or the attendance of the service station, the novelty lies in being able see fuel prices at each gas station of the Spanish territory. This includes any type of fuel, as it shows what a liter costs for diesel, S95 gasoline and SP98 gasoline. However, Google Maps shows by default in the thumbnail and lists only the price of the SP95.
We do not know how accurate this Google tool will be. However, it is a very useful function that can be used to compare stations before going rather than to know, to the penny, the price they will charge us. It should also be noted that it does not work with all service stations, as we have found some where the price of any fuel does not appear.
