Hardly ever go to Wally World but today when pulling in I saw these. There are two EVGo stations. There is a kiosk to accept a credit/debit card there as well but no pricing information was to be found. I guess you are supposed to just use them and be surprised by the fees.
Not that I would ever use them but even if I wanted to I couldn't. Neither plug is the type my Volt accepts. What the heck?!?!?

First pic is a Chademo, 2nd is a DCFC. The bolt and leaf have the second one if you paid extra for that option (or got a higher-up model). These are for fast level3 charging. Your volt needs level 2 or premium gas. Evethough the 2nd one shares the J1772, there's no power going to the main power pins of the J1772 part, the power comes through those two big prongs.

The top one is a CHAdeMO standard electric plug
The bottom one is a J-1772 "combo" electric plug
