Feature Request: Live gas prices in Apple Maps

Apple Maps has gotten a lot better since it was launched in 2012. Its new interfaces, modern look, and additions have all been wonderful in some way.

Throughout the past few weeks, I have done some traveling of my own and found that there is a feature Apple needs to try adding to Apple Maps.

Not only would this feature be beneficial to its users, but could also make the Apple Maps experience much better, especially for road trips.

The feature I am wanting Apple to look into is adding current/live gas prices to Apple Maps.

While having apps like GasBuddy can be helpful for some users, it would be nice to have a way to have their gas prices added to Apple Maps. I would think that Apple could either buy out the company and then integrate its gas prices into Apple Maps, or for Apple to create a partnership with the app (like Apple has done with Yelp and The Weather Channel) to add those gas prices to Apple Maps.

It would also be nice to see if Apple Maps could find a way to show whether or not a gas station has Apple Pay/contactless support at the pump, therefore, people would not have to go inside a gas station to fill up.

App Clip support at gas stations could be nice to see too, as I feel as though those have been forgotten about by Apple enthusiasts, consumers and Apple itself.

To sweeten the pot even more, Apple could encourage Apple Card users to fill up their vehicles at an ExxonMobil gas station because of the 3% in Daily Cash they would earn if they make their purchase with an iPhone or Apple Watch.

What are your thoughts on this feature request for Apple Maps? Is it something you would be interested in and use? Comment below or let us know on Twitter at @appleosophy.
