Cash or debit cards here. We try to stay far, far away from credit cards.

Credit cards are evil.

If we run low on cash (and nope, we don't carry a lot) we hit an ATM machine.

Credit card for fuel, park fees, and eating out and large purchases (cash back is generally $300+ per year). Debit card for groceries and cash when I am low. Cash for fast food, snacks, coffee stops and other smaller purchases. Credit cards are paid in full each month so no interest. It works for us. YMMV

Oh, good idea. had thought about a hiding spot for cash I didn't want to
carry around but didn't think about the camera and laptop and it is a
pain to always make sure they are hidden in the truck. And truck not always a safe place either. Hmmm.

Credit/debit for everything else because that is what the money manager wants.

So both!
I remember the pay cash for gas and get a discount thing from sometime in the past,but I don't remember seeing any stations lately offering the option.

Is it offered locally for you or only on the open road?

Im a cash for everything kinda guy....my wife NEVER has cash (hmmmmm! Lol)...on trips I preferr the amex or the rewards card (used wisely and if you have the right cards the perks can be significant!)....but I will say recently while in florida, our bank blocked our debit card and amex did also citing an absurd number of frauds. They would NOT turn them back on!...my bank let me do a ONE TIME cash advance to another bank for vacation money. ..but I just dont like thousands of dollars out in the open...safe or not......but no one declines cash!

Actually there are some gas stations around here (Alberta) that only do credit or debit, no cash and our County CG only accepts cash. Everything else is paid based on rewards.

It is a 6 cent fee add to the per gallon price at the pump.

Say 3.99 a gallon for cash then using a credit card would be 4.05 a gallon.

I understand they are allowed this fee to compensate them for taking a CC instead of cash, Pilot truck stops are just one Pilot does one price in red the other in green.
.

I saw several places when we were out on our long trip last month that showed the two prices.

More credit and debit than cash. I usually use my AMEX frequent fliers card for most items and pay it off monthly. I usually get enough miles to upgrade to first class for the once a year that I fly to visit my daughter.
