Google at the pumps?

| 11/7/2007

Google is teaming up with gas pump maker Gilbarco Veeder-Root to dispense travel information at the pump.

According to The Associated Press, the pumps will have Internet connections and a small screen that displays directions for getting to local landmarks, hotels and airports. The customer can scroll through the information and get a printout.

The devices are expected to show up on thousands of pumps beginning next month, and eventually, the companies hope that customers will be able to type in a specific address and get a printed-out map.
