Air cost 50 cents by me. Nothing is free anymore, not even air.

And ive also read that most places (gas stations) that charge for it put moisture in your tires, which is no good....

So... My caps are blue and have a N2 on them. Just new caps or am I colorblind and they're really green?

Green does mean nitro. They might have just switched them so they didn't have to deal with it.
I felt this way also but they charged me 8 bucks for the entire service all i brought was oil and filter (he said he gave me the crush washer and 1/2 quart of esther because i only brought 5) so idk ill ask again next time.

Discount tire airs up your tires for free. Also that damp sensor is a bunch of bs. most sensors only last 6 years. Just don't put fix a flat and you should be good.

My Z06 came with regular good 'ol air in the tires. All four tire-sensors are giving me accurate to the PSI pressure in real-time nearly a year later. Don't sweat it.

Just use regular air. Regular air is already 80% nitrogen naturally. Don't worry about it. It's not a space shuttle.

That's good right there

Nitrogen is a gimmick for the everyday people. F1, yeah, fractions of a psi make a difference, but as long as you stay on top of your pressures, you'll be fine.
