A Gas station will charge you more for using a credit card? haha. Thats a joke!!!

I used to think how great it would be to live in the US sometimes, many things are much cheaper. (for example the M5, almost 10k more here still). But damn...gas stations charging a premium for using your Credit card?

Thats just crazy!
Hmm, most gas stations aren't dumb enough to call it a credit card premium; they usually call it a "cash discount", and it's usually done either as a perk since they won't have to pay the merchant services fee on the transaction -- or on the shadier shops (and businesses with cash discounts in general), so they don't have to report the income from those transactions on their tax returns.
