I use my new ExxonMobil "Smart Card" which gives me a $.06 per gallon rebate, which makes my net price very competitive with any of the lowball options out there.

And, if a particular ExxonMobil station also offers a discount for cash, I automatically receive the lower cash price when I use their "Smart Card," even though it's a credit card.

Cash. Cards always has surcharge although some gas stations decides to publish them separately from the bill. What irritates me is that some gas station also charges from Debit Card which is supposed to be taking money from your bank account directly hence less cost.

Only pay at the pump, I stay out of the stores. If I have to go in for cash I do not buy anything else.

Card, but when leaving the country for more than a month I use cash everywhere so I don't come home to a c.c bill with interest added!

Always card at the pump. I hate going inside as I tend to wind up behind some nut buying 23 different lottery tickets.
