I'm reading this article which says coinbase could charge you for gas fees.

However, when Ethereum gets congested, Coinbase will charge you for gas fees too. When it comes to gas, Uniswap and Coinbase are a wash.

Is this actually true?

The fee page on coinbase makes no mention of gas fees.

Possibly off-topic, as it's about a third-party application...

For Coinbase Pro, the article is correct as of September 2020, as per this Tweet:

Starting today, Coinbase Pro will pass along network fees directly to our customers. These fees (sometimes referred to as “gas fees” on the Eth blockchain) are paid directly to crypto miners that process transactions and secure the respective network.

  • That's interesting...given that coinbase is just a centralized exchange, I'm curious how gas fees come into play at all here.
