As far as these gas pumps go; they may not have known the dangers when they started, but they sure knew about them when they avoided paying for the cleanup.
The federal government, meanwhile, plans to clean up a plume of cancer-causing solvent discovered beneath a former Kiel Bros. station that threatens drinking water near the Pence family’s hometown.

Every gas station pays into a fund to take care of contamination under any situation. They do here, that cost is spread out amongst the gas customers buy. The cleanup is being funded by that organization, the fact that the legal costs bankrupted the company and were found later to not be right means that the state is on the hook for these charges.
I am thinking these charges may never have been right, someone was trying to get back at that business, probably someone who would gain by them being shut down.

Maxine Waters husband got bailout to the tune of 12 million.
Internet posts claiming that U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is facing corruption charges neglects to tell readers the incident is seven years old and that the charges were dropped.
"California Democrat Maxine Waters charged on 3 counts," read the headline on an Oct. 6, 2017, post on NewsOfTrump.com. The headline added a hallmark of fake news sites looking to engage an audience, asking readers, "Do you support this?"
Waters denied any wrongdoing, mounted an aggressive defense and has opted to make her case in a public trial to take place sometime this fall.

If their share were higher they would just pass it along to you at the pump. Maybe we should nationalize gas stations?
We could always increase tariffs on imported oil.
