Ian Gregor in the Daily Breeze says it's the Texaco station on Century Boulevard at LAX, the last place to fill up before returning a rental car.

"They don’t care — they’re tourists, businessmen on business accounts,” said [Ray] Abdollahi, who identified himself as the station manager.

He charges $2.69 a gallon for regular self-serve, 54 cents a gallon more than the Union 76 station across the street -- headed out of the airport.
