Just thought I’d post from the current state of affairs. I recently found a good gas station near our house that at least doesn’t shut the pumps off at $50. It goes to $75. A concept that baffles me still. If you are going to begin charging $4 per gallon of gas, you need to authorize the pumps for much more than a $50 a swipe. I usually find myself swiping the cards 2-3 times at a fillup. Here’s a couple shots from my iPhone of tonight’s transactions.
The first swipe got me to $74.90. (I don’t have patience for the agonizingly slow last 10 cents)
The second swipe at the card-o-matic got me comfortably full for under $60.
Here are my lovely choices. (Does anyone really buy 93 Octane any more?)
Oh well, that’ll be $133.82 Have a nice day.
