Isn't it illegal to charge for air to inflate your car tires by a gas station in florida

Report as

Not familiar with Florida law but it's pretty common everywhere I've been. You can thank the hooligans who like to cut the air hoses making it more expensive for the gas station to provide the service. Usually if you buy your gas there you can go in and ask them to turn on the air compressor and they will.

They are not charging for air, they are charging for the electricity to power the air compressor. Even if I think air should be free everywhere.

No. The gas is not free. Why should the air be free?

Well, I sure as hell doubt I'd do it for free. It's nice to help someone out, but stuff just ain't cheap anymore. Just forget about it and be happy someone aired your tire for you

You could always carry your own hand held air pump with you and pump up your tires as much as you want and anywhere you want, or you could buy yourself a few cans of air. When the situation is put into a context where you are actually a participant it is easier to see reasons why for example a gas station would charge to air up a tire.

Most stations have machines now that you put 25 cents in to get it to work and no it's not illegal .

They can charge for the use of their air pump. How could that be illegal anywhere?

"Air" parrently it's different in different states. Here in CA, they cannot charge for store users, and I've gotten air air free, anyway.
