I have a question regarding gas stations and pricing. I recently got gas at a gas station I don't normally visit, but I assumed they're all the same. The sign said gas was $3.89 a gallon, but as I was pumping it I noticed the sign underneath that said the price for paying with a credit card is $3.99 a gallon. I was curious if gas stations can legally charge more for people using credit cards--even if they post a sign. Being a small business owner, when we set up our account with MasterCard and Visa, we signed an agreement with them that we legally couldn't charge customers more for using a credit card. Does this also apply to gas stations?
