My son and his fiancee are going to Maine for their honeymoon and I would like to lend them one of my gas credit cards for the trip. Based on how many of each company's gas stations they are likely to encounter, would it be better to give them my Exxon-Mobil, Shell, or Citgo card?

Thanks in advance.

It depends what area they are going to but I suggest Exxon Mobil, they seem to be the easist for me to find everywhere. Shell does not have a lot of stations in my area, but citgo is fairly common as well.

I think Citgo is cheaper than Exxon/Mobil too.

Citgo or Shell. It seems like many of the Mobil stations around here have swapped to other brands. I believe even the overpriced gas on the Maine Turnpike in York has switched brands.

Shell is hard to find in my area. Exxon/Mobil are most prevelant, citgo is next. Also I find that most citgo stations around here are a bit higher than Mobil and Irving.

Seriously, get an Irving card (if Irving issues one and I'm not sure they do.)
