New Business: Have Gas Delivered to Your Parked Car

(Image: The Verge)

Do you need to fill up your car but don't have time to stop by a gas station? There's an app for that.

WeFuel is a new startup in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, two towns in the Silicon Valley area of California. Install the WeFuel app on your phone. Then, with a few clicks, the company will send a fuel truck driven by a hazmat-certified driver to your car and fill it up. The process takes about 30 minutes and costs $7.49 plus the cost of fuel. You can also get a monthly subscription that costs $19.99 plus gas per car. 

That's just the beginning. WeFuel hopes to roll out a service that will sense when your fuel tank is low and automatically dispatch a truck and driver to refill it. You can read more about the company at The Verge.

Mark my words, this is the ground floor of a business-to-be-in. As electric cars take over, gasoline suppliers will need to compete on more than price.

Look for a service that drives around a big, BIG generator to charge electric-only cars that have gone too far.
