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.

The difference between cash and credit price for 10% ethanol 87 octane regular gas is about 10 to 15 cents per gallon in the Washington DC Area.

At my last fill up of 9 gallons , I saved about 14 cents per gallon by buying with cash. So my overall saving was about $1.25. Not much but every little bit helps.
