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.

Almost always by credit card and usually with a card which offers rewards for purchasing gas.

Credit only. I attach a credit card of my choosing to my Exxon/Mobil speedpass wand. I'm completely safe from credit card hackers this way too.

Depending on what card I utilize and what promotion is going on; I can save 2 to 20 cents a gallon, 3% to 5% cash back.
