My beef with the gas station is that it runs counter to Massport's outlined ground transportation goals. Need a place to refill your rental car before return? Fine--I can understand that. But if Massport's seeking to discourage TNC journeys to/from Logan, then they shouldn't give them a place to fuel up, let alone a place to idle on the airport property.
Providing an on-site fueling station for people returning rental cars is a US standard for airports. Doing otherwise would look like Massport is supporting price gouging by the rental companies.

It's striking when this isn't the case. I rented a car in Philly and refilling before dropping off was really difficult, even with all the assistance of digital maps.

Love this. Could have been just another basic box but it has ambition and nicely updates the futurism of Googie stations of the 50s/60s.

At least it's out there and not hidden behind a CommBUYS registration.
