Free air

A frustrating experience is to have low air pressure in your tires, pull into a gasoline station, and then not be able to find any quarters for the air pressure machine.  Do they really make any money by charging you 75 cents?  Or what if you can't find your tire pressure gauge and you need to guess at how much air to put in based on how tight the tires look?

So I very much appreciated when we stopped at a Sheetz gas station in Pennsylvania and found this no-charge air machine.  Not only is it free, but you can dial in electronically the pressure that you want, and it clicks up to your desired pressure and stops when it gets there.

A nice example of how innovation can come to a fixture that has been around for decades.
