What is the incentive for miners to accept low/zero fee transactions?

I've been watching the mempool lately just realised that often there are blocks queued up with transaction fees significantly higher than many of the ones pending in the most current pending block. What stops the miners from pushing those low fees to a subsequent block? Is there an algorithm to ensure transactions don't get too old in favour of fees?
