In our area almost all the gas stations changed to paid air pumps a few years ago, $.50 to $1.00 for a minute or so. It's not so much the cost as the inconvenience of having enough quarters and having to deal with the time limit while juggling caps and a pressure gauge. My favorite gas station still has free air and they even upgraded the pump last year.

We had a powered air pump at home a while ago but it was cheap and didn't last. DH keeps a nice manual pump for his bike tires.

We keep a 35mm film canister in each car-- they're just the right diameter for a stack of quarters.

Our 19-year-old thinks they're the coolest containers ever, and she has no idea what 35mm film was used for. She has noticed that it's awful hard to find more of those cool containers.

It didn't bother me but I was aware of it.

In pursuits at 100+mph "little things" start to matter a lot. That's why I was so fussy about the car being in good shape. It becomes a survival issue.
