    We are another baby-step closer to "The Jetsons". Google just added a database of EV charging stations to Google Maps. This helps drivers of electric vehicles figure out where they can "fill up" while traveling on longer trips or out of their neighborhood. This looks like the start of a potentially very useful feature. With gas prices expected to soar this summer because of all the "unrest" in the middle-east, it would be nice to see a future filled with Android-powered EV's using this app. Any forum members actually have an EV to be able to take advantage of this app yet? Or, do you plan on getting one?
