It may be less expensive to NOT rent cars at the airport, but get a "Shuttle" to your hotel and then rent a car nearby! I know it is more expensive to rent a car at The STL Airport than any other place in town.
As far as "Resort Fee's", I really try to avoid these places and have changed my hotel locations in some cities because of that reason.
Most of the exhorbitant rental car charges are due to local taxes to fund stadiums and other unpopular local spending initiatives. It is easier to tax those who don't vote. 'Taxation without representations'. Kansas City has one of the highest rental car taxes in the country to fund the Sprint Center, which still has no pro team tenant.
