We should start looking for gas stations that charge the same price for cash or credit.....it sucks having to go in, wait on line, pay, come back for the change, blah, blah

Credit card prices are the same in my area, so I use my card for gas purchases.

Rare to find a cash discount here so I always use a credit card rather than carry an extra $100+ in my pocket to fill up my two cars.

Both, we should be able to pay at the pump.

Hopefully in the near future we pay at the pump like the car wash.

Credit with 5 percent cash back at the pump. And, no, I don't spend money at Starbucks.

I like themusicrabbi's point: if the mobile app could have a box to check, indicating whether the station has unified cash + credit pricing, or a split. Trying to include both prices, especially on the mobile app, would be cumbersome. Just a box to check.

I think most people understand that the lower (always cash) price is to be posted, and that credit/debit prices are usually about 10 cents higher.

I agree, some stations don't charge a difference in credit but the pricing we submit doesn't really stand out.

Convenience is a bitch when you have to pay a buck for it.
I bet some of these same people complaining buy 5$ Starbucks on a day to day basis.

Good Morning FrankyFL. I always use my cash-back credit card which offers 5% off gasoline purchases, when paid at the pump. At $3.00 a gallon, that is $.15 saved per gallon. In addition, I use E0 Regular 87 Octane gasoline sold at a local truck stop. Their cash and credit prices for this fuel are always the same. Take care :-) . MGY
