The Demise Of The ‘Service Station’

I went to the Dulaney Valley Road Hess Station to get gas and because it’s the only place. I know of with free air in the area.

Now I reckon high gas prices come with the territory. But it bothers me as much, if not more that most gas stations no longer offer air and if they do it’s a half-dollar or more.

This is done in the face of evidence that many drivers have underinflated tires out on the road. It seems that if the nation was serious about maintaining road safety we’d focus on keeping service stations with some service in them.
