I have notice the price difference between cash & credit. For a long time, it was usually around 4 to 6 cents more per gallon. Now at a few stations it is up 14 to 16 cents per gallon. Are the credit card companies squeezing the gas stations and/or the gas stations just charging to get more money from the public.

Here in WI. its is anywhere between 4 to 10 cent difference. Wont pay it give them cash and only a little, we tend to stay away from these price gougers. On a nicer note may you all have a BLESSED AND HAPPY EASTER!:)

I avoid patronizing those who charge extra for credit.

If I must, I still use credit simply because it's cheaper than paying by cash or debit. I get 3-5% discount on my credit card plus 3c per gallon discount using my FRN card.

Suppose a station charges $3.94/gal for cash and $4.00/gal for credit.
I pay $4 - $0.03 = $3.97 minus 5% = $3.78/gallon with my credit card.

Squeezing me? Nope, I squeeze them. LOL

Of course I notice, when it happens. Been years since I've paid cash for gas, so I generally buy where the prices are the same (even though it rips off those who pay cash...).
