You know what really grinds my gears? Gas stations that charge for air...

57 posts in this topic

So I get home from work, and think, Ah, what a beautiful, clear night. I'm going to go to the gas station and put some air in my tires since the little light came on my dash the other day.

I roll over into New Westminster and hit the Esso at 6th and 8th and they want 50 cents to use the nozzle! Are they for realzies? I said nuts to that and went over to the other Esso, weirdly enough on a different 6th and 8th... 50 cents. No deal.

Then, I went down to the Petro Canada on Stewardson.... they wanted $1.00! WTFist.

I drive a pickup and it costs me anywhere from $150-$200 to fill up and these guys want to charge me to toot some air into my tire? Give your heads a shake.

I vow that from here on out, I will only support gas stations that provide free air compressor use as a service to their customers. Who is with me? amirite comrades?

What's next, are they going to charge me to wash my windows?

Maybe a paper towel dispenser that takes quarters?

I know! My truck's tires have been needing some air for awhile now but I'm not paying for air!

So just buy a compressor and carry it around with you. Great for emergencies. I bought mine from CA Tire for like ... I forget, 20 or 30$, it's got a car adapter and built-in flashlight as well.

So for a 50 cent charge, you drove to 3 different gas stations? I'm quite certain you spent more in gas than the air would have cost you.

Also, the 50 cents isn't for air, its for the compressor. Air is free, the technology isn't

So you willingly drive a truck and pay $200 a week (most likely) for gas but not $0.50 for air which you might need once or twice a year..

Y'know, Gandhi once said "man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men."

I think Shell has it for free.

As an aside, Lays charges for air as well; lucky for us, it comes with chips on the side.

If Shell is on your blacklist, you oughta take every opportunity to obtain free air, use the squeegees, and piss all over their toilet seats, while not purchasing gas.
