Thread: Pay for air

    Pay for air

    Hi,

    in Germany we must now pay for air at the gas station.
    For 5 minutes of air we will pay € 1.

    Do you know that too?

    We've been paying in Ontario Canada since my early twenties! (I am almost 39 now ... )

    It's pretty common in the US to have to drop a few quarters in the air machine too.

    It is common in Oregon as well. It costs about a half dollar for air.

    In Connecticut it is illegal to charge for air, BUT the machines all take coins to run. Because it is a state law, they put a sign up that says that the air is free, you just have to ask the attendant to turn it on. But I am sure a lot of people miss that, and just put in $.

    Free gas station compressed air is pretty rare now days. When they started charging 15-20 years ago here, we purchased our own inexpensive (Black & Decker) compressor for home, and use this both for the van, car, and wheelchair tires.

    I use to own service station's, somebody has to pay for the compressor, the electricity to run it and the maintainence of it.

    Out here in the midwest, we just call one of the football players to come over and blow the tire back up.

    I hated when they started that stuff here, air compressors don't cost that much.
