The San Antonio City Council may green light a gas station at the San Antonio International Airport.
“I think it’s a good idea,” Councilman Joe Krier told KTSA News. “It’s a great thing for business travelers who rent cars and vacationers who rent cars and want to gas up before turning the car in.”
The plan would put a gas station right on airport grounds, but it wasn’t easy getting to this point.
“We needed to be very careful about how we did a gas station at the airport,” Councilman Roberto Trevino said.
Trevino supports it, but was concerned that airport gateway signage would be minimized by gas station signage.
“A gas station should not overpower what that was about and then all of a sudden now we have a gas station that’s our gateway instead of that signage,” he said.
But adjustments to the proposal have been made and he said he’s all for it.
Councilman Krier said a gas station will go well with the new rental car facility under construction at SAT.
