Rural airstrips, particularly those without a fenced perimeter, may have a fuel station that could very well also serve up fuels for ground transportation.  There's a little bit of a legacy of that around metro Tulsa; the oldest gas station adjacent to what is now Tulsa International Raceway (but formerly the main airport) has large warning labels on the pumps reading NOT SUITABLE FOR AIRCRAFT USE.  The avgas pumps now sell racing fuel.

Thats super interesting!

I suppose having those rural and vehecle acessible fuel stations labeled gas station is good (maybe both tags, as they are in different keyspaces?) But the jet fuel stations in the center of an international airport certainly don't a "gas station" tag - as it mihht lead to some pretty confused tourists with retnal cars takig a. Wrong turn into a cargo terminal looking for a sration close to the rental car return ^_^

If you cant buy gas, it really isn't a gas station.
