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.

Since there are no stations that offer a discount near me I usually use the card. If on those rare occasions that I have enough cash with me I'll use it if I am also going into the station to purchase something inside.

I pay by credit card. Usually of the cards I have, at least one of them may offer a "rebate" of up to 5%. When calculating the effective price, it will often beat the cash price.

I think I never use my credit card in pay for my gas, I always use cash to pay my gas and gasoline bill.
