The freshness of information is of the utmost importance in many contexts, including V2X networks and applications. One measure of this metric is the Age of Information (AoI), a notion recently introduced and explored by several authors, often with specific reference to vehicular networks. With this work, we explore the possibility of reducing the AoI of multi-hop information flooding in V2X networks exploiting the properties of the Eigenvector Centrality (EvC) of nodes in the topology, and the possibility that each node computes it exploiting only local information and very easy computations, so that each node can autonomously adapt its own networking parameters to redistribute information more efficiently. Starting from theoretical bounds and results, we explore how they hold in urban-constrained topologies and compare the AoI achieved exploiting EvC with the AoI achievable without this optimization of the nodes' behavior. Simulation results show a meaningful improvement without using additional resources and without the need of any global coordination.
