How do you pay for gas

Read an article yesterday in RVTravel that said that when you pay for gas with a Debit/credit card or a regular credit card the station holds the transaction for a day. Could have several hundred dollars tied up for a couple days. How do most of you guys pay for your gas. Thanks for the input.

I use gasoline company credit cards or prepaid gas cards. Publix, our local grocery store, periodically sells $50 prepaid national brand gas cards for $40 with a $50 grocery purchase. I'm buying groceries anyway so I'll gladly buy Shell cards at a 20% discount...

Every trip we take goes on a credit card, this way any unapproved transaction can be fought easily, bill paid at the end of the month.

I try to use the Pilot/Flying J cards exclusively when we're on the road - typically get a nickel per gallon discount. Each month we get an electronic statement pay the balance from our checking account. It's worked really well for nearly three years now......

I use a credit card, I will not use my debt card. The reason is if someone puts a readed on the pump they can drain your account with the debt card no recourse at all. If they have a reader and I use a credit card I can dispute anything on it and it's not tied to my bank account. I do not have to pay the credit card back if it becomes compromised. My credit card gets compromised once a year. Never had to pay for the use. Also my bank keeps tract and if something weird comes up they freeze it until I call them after being notified.

Usually with a Walmart credit card with 5 off per gallon. Was 15 off per gallon for several months until prices came down. Paid 2.26 per gallon today. When not at Walmart I use Visa.
