I rarely encounter gas stations that charge more for credit than cash. I always use a credit card.
I never use my ATM card as a debit card because of the hassle if the card gets cloned. I can deal with a credit card being shut down but I don't want anybody screwing with my bank account.
Definitely the credit card for the same reason others have said! Its all about the points! Capital one travel plus (or whatever the heck the call it!). $20 a year gets me 2 points per dollar spent instead of just 1 point per dollar - well worth that $20 in my book!
Back to the gas prices - my wife just filled her audi Q7 up this morning and had her 1st $100+ tank since the last spike in prices in '08
paid (credit card) $4.25 for regular unleaded today. i used to put in the mid-grade gas but $0.20 today seemed offensive.
Just paid $4.03/gallon for 91 octane (always pay with CC for convenience). Nice to be able to go to NH where the taxes are lower.
I just don't like that the prices are shooting up even though there isn't a supply problem. Makes me wonder how high the prices would be if supplies really were short.
$4.56 for regular here. heard it was going up .12 cents in a few days at this rate we will be at $5.00 this summer have a exxonmobile credit card so avoid the CC charge. It is the only provider on island
My wife and I have beeen putting everything we buy on our CC for years. We pay the balance in fulll every month. Never paid an interest charge.
We even pay any monthly bills this way if there is no penalty to do so. Verison, At&t, Directv etc. We've got a Points cash back Mastercard where we get 1.25% of ALL purchases back in cash, plus there no annual fee.
We also avoid those nasty gas stations that charge extra for credit card use. I noticed more and more are doing this now so this could be a problem in the future.
