Exactly. If you have any idea how a gas station works, it's pretty much common sense. Another factor is that it probably makes inventory control much simpler.

If anyone has ever seen a gas station in the midst of replacing it's tanks, you'd be amazed at how deep a hole has to be dug. Temperature fluctuations are minimal more than a couple of feet down.

Then again, most people lack common sense or any understanding of how they are able to go about their lives without getting stranded somewhere and starving to death.
