What gas stations can you see in Spain and abroad

Apart from seeing other elements such as the schedule or the attendance of the service station, the function lies in being able to see fuel prices at each gas station of the Spanish territory. This includes any type of fuel, as it shows what a liter costs for diesel, S95 gasoline and SP98 gasoline. However, Google Maps shows by default in the thumbnail of the list of gas stations only the price of the SP95. It is also difficult to know the accuracy of the displayed prices, taking into account the volatility of the fuel price.

The same curiosity is piqued whether we can see the gas stations in Spain as abroad. Many of the trips outside our borders are made by car, or better yet, trucker and bus driver jobs can greatly benefit from this tool. All these groups that we have discussed do kilometers on the roads of other countries, so it is good to know if this works for any part of the world.

The truth is Google Maps allows you to see the prices of any country, for two reasons. The first, because it is a function that is available in other countries, apart from Spain. The second is that the search is so globalized that, even residing in Spain, we can see the gas stations and their prices in another country. Of course, with nuances, since they do not appear in all, something that depends on the importance or location of each gas station.
