Don't use plastic to buy gasoline.

Found this interesting thread on Surfing the Apocalypse.
Used to be the gas stations etc would charge a dollar to see if the card was valid and then let you purchase your gas.

NOW they are charging 100.00 to see if your card is valid.

And it is returned in about a week.

So this is becomming very common....I know others it has happened to as well. And if you are juggling, like I do and this is taken out without you knowing - it causes your automatic payments to bounce.

And it's all perfectly "legal".

Sigh
The more you know....

Wait 'til gas hits 8-12 a gallon after bush bombs Iran. Then they will probably double that.

I'm pretty sure you have the right to ask about this in advance, buy $2 gas with cask, and drive down the road to a different station. The loss of such business MIGHT make a difference, but in this economy ya ALMOST can't blame 'em.

I guess the above applies with CASH as well as a CASK. I guess.
