Gas Pumps at Car Dealerships? No. Charging Stations? Yes

Car dealers don’t put gasoline pumps on their premises for public use. So why are electric-vehicle charging stations popping up at dealerships?
There are three reasons:
One, it’s good for customer relations.
Two, it shows a dealer “gets” EVs as those vehicles grow in popularity.
Three, many automakers require their dealers to install chargers at their stores if they want to sell battery-electric vehicles.
