Kicker - Out of gas?

WORLD Radio - Kicker - Out of gas?

There’s an app for that


MARY REICHARD, HOST: Sometimes stopping for gas is just a hassle. Like when you’re running late, you look down and see the needle on “E.”

Well, Ford Motor Company and a startup in Dubai are teaming up to solve that problem. It starts with an app on a smartphone, which can help get most anything delivered these days.

So why not fuel?

SOUND: Lincoln Navigator will be refueled. Please select the vehicle location.

You can just pull up an app in the car’s info-tainment system, tell the app where you’re parked, and a fuel truck comes to the rescue!

At the moment, though, this service is only available in parts of the United Arab Emirates. So you’ll have to pump your own gas a little while longer.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
