Google brings search to the gas pump

New York Times
Starting in December, Google will provide its mapping service for motorists at 3,500 gas pumps across the U.S. The service initially will offer directions to local landmarks, hotels, restaurants and hospitals, but eventually the pumps may accommodate requests for specific addresses, according to pump manufacturer Gilbarco Veeder-Root.

Interesting strategy. I wonder if they can set up Google Map consoles at advertisers' offices so that they can help them find directions to their consumers?
