A few stations around our town offer 5¢ , 6¢ , or 7¢ per gallon of gas. However, they are not even the cheapest gas stations in town no matter what the grade of gas happens to be. ( Of course some clubs or credit cards will offer you an additional percentage or discount and maybe that is the way to go. ) After checking around for price advantage, I've ended up charging my gas purchases to a credit card.

So, do you end up buying gas at the CASH discount, if offered (and if it ends up cheaper than a credit card) Or Do you just pay for your gasoline purchase with your credit card ?

CASH or CREDIT .... how do you pay for your gasoline purchase ?

Then.....if you pay in CASH ... how many pennies ¢¢¢ discount per gallon do you get offered.

Always in credit card
Normally here in Baltimore, MD USA we get 4-10 cents off per gallon if using cash

A few problems
1) I never carry cash
2) I get 3-5% back for gasoline purchases, so I still save more

Gas Stations that offer the 10-cent discounts are usually more expensive to start with anyway so I avoid those

Here in Savannah, they have discounts for using their gas club debit cards. You do not get the discount without it. I could not fill up my pick-up with the cash I carry. I have a hard enough time paying for lunch with cash ;-)
