We are happy to announce that Waze’s cheap fuel price locator is now officially available in the United Kingdom!
The feature, which enables drivers to find the cheapest petrol stations along or near their route, can now be accessed on any smartphone within the United Kingdom.
The feature allows drivers to update real-time fuel prices at local stations and navigate to the cheapest petrol station along their route. Users searching for fuel can view nearby stations color-coded by cost (see below). In fact, users in the UK have already contributed more than 4,000 fuel price updates at petrol stations across the country.
Our UK map-editing community, including Darren McConachie (aka dmcconachie) and Tim Rigden (aka Timbones), provided us with a detailed list of more than 7,000 of the 8,700 country’s petrol stations, expediting the release of the feature there.
The petrol station feature is entirely dependent on crowdsourced information. The more petrol stations our editors add, the faster the feature will be made available in each country.
What are your thoughts on Waze’s real time fuel prices?
