The agreement between business and credit card companies is that they can't charge more for credit card use.

But a loophole is they can offer discounts...for some reason, the credit card companies haven't closed the loophole.

But really, not worth the trouble unless you are burning an awful lot of fuel.

We have not paid interest on CC's in many years... It's a nice place to be and I a thankful for being able to do so.


EXACTLY!

I hit the Truck Stops that way I have ZERO issue entering or exiting. Towing doubles or not I still use em.

Let's say I pay .25 a gallon more than the Arco down the road at 25 gallons that is only $6.25.

Some will "Trip over" that amount, I sure don't!

In the grand scheme of things if it's that important to save a few dollars vs the convenience of stopping where you want, maybe you can't afford this trip. Just sayin.

I agree if the small difference in cost for fuel is never a consideration. Not to say I look for a deal but if fuel is a major concern you may not want to travel as there are so many other costs that can make fuel look like a very small concern.

We see more and more stations in this area posting prices for X price and then if you use a credit card you pay a higher price. Some will have a very small 'cash' under the price posted on their billboard.

Well you all are sure enjoying the discussion I started. I note there is only one other Canuck commenting.
The rest of you have the luxury of being a lot closer to the warmer climates and you can get there using real money. Not the funny money us poor freedom loving Canadians are saddled with.
We already are taking a hit on our funny currency so having to look for the best options and curbing our wandering is all part of the pain.
We do it anyhow because it is that time of our lives.
I sometimes think that our lousy government manipulates a lower currency in an effort to make Canadians stay home.
I feel so protected.
Thank you my American friends. You have a great country and I do feel blessed to have you as a neighbour.
I have posted many a question here over the years and I appreciate the always quick response.

"You still have Arco stations out on that coast ?"

YES, they are called AM/PM Stations. Used to be cash only/debit card.

Many none corporate owned stations around here charge 6-8 cents more per gallon using CC.
