Two Bits For Compressed Gas?

I pulled up next to this air compressor at a gas station and noticed that the owner wants two bucks to use it for five minutes. I had to laugh a little because the price to use one of these used to be a buck or less. Call this price gouging or whatever, but the damn pandemic caused everything to jump in price. Sunshine of course, and 102 degrees for the valley today which is far more in line with normal daytime temperatures for a Las Vegas summer.
