Gas prices are still out of hand — but Google Maps could help

Last year Google Maps announced that it was launching a new “eco-friendly routes” feature, designed to reduce your fuel consumption. It sounds like that feature is getting an update that should make it even more efficient — and save you more money in the process.

According to 9to5Google’s (opens in new tab) teardown of the latest Google Maps beta, the app is going to let you choose the kind of car you drive. That way Google Maps can take it into account, and generate the most energy-efficient routes it can.
