As you can see from the other posters, this is very common for this age!! I remember it well with my ds and I would get so frustrated because it seemed like we would stop to nurse on a bench or wherever every 20 minutes only to have him nurse for a minute and pop off and act uninterested!! ugh.
So, what I would do when we went somewhere is when we got there I would nurse in the car and "tank him up" ( and hopefully have him fall asleep!lol). It seemed to help with the one minute snacks during the trip. Then when we left, I would nurse him again for another good feeding. Also, this is when those "nursing rooms" that stores provide come in handy. I don't like to nurse in them usually but when your lil one is so distracted it is nice to have a quiet room to nurse in.
My dd is just a few weeks old and I can nurse her whenever, wherever without any problems, but I'm not looking forward to when she gets distracted and it makes nursing a chore for a brief time. But like everything else, "this too shall pass!!!" Good luck!
