    Default Cash or CC for gasoline?

    I've been wondering how most people are paying for their gasoline --- cash or credit card?

    On one of the Sunday morning news shows someone said that despite the higher cost of gasoline, folks are still buying it and driving --- so they must not be feeling the burden of higher costs. And it occurred to me that if it wasn't so easy to pay with a credit card and everyone had to pay cash for their gas that the consumption would go down. And it would be more obvious that folks are feeling the "pinch".

    We buy our gas with a credit card for various reasons --- convenience being the main one. Its just easier to pay at the pump and of course then we don't have to carry huge bundles of cash around. But I'm dreading the higher credit card bills each month.

    Anyway, I'm just curious -- how about the rest of you? Do you pay with cash or a credit card?

    We pay cash (debit card), just like with everything else we buy. Gas prices are outrageous... I can't believe how high they are.

    I'm still gassing up my mini though because it's summer and there is so much to do, ya know? I was thinking about a nationwide gas-out. Wasn't there something like that last year? Hmmm...

    I pay 90% of the time with a debit card and the other 10%, with a gas credit card, which is paid in full every month.

    Debit card, so we can pay at the pump. I do not enjoy dragging two girls out of the car into a nasty gas station to pay cash! Debit card is our compromise
