Why are BTC ATM fees to high?

In an effort to practice good btc hygiene I wanted to turn cash directly to BTC at a local atm, but was appalled by the high fees. BTC is at 16k and I could not find it cheaper than 19k at 4 atms I checked. Why is this so high?? It’s like a 12-15% increase over market price.

Thanks for the guidance!
