That's pretty weak. Can you imagine if any other institution, say a restaurant, for instance, charged you more for the meal if you put it on a credit card? You'd likely take your business elsewhere in the future.

I'm not entirely sure if it's even legal as far as the contact a merchant signed with Visa, Master, Amex & Discover to charge a card holder more for using their card...Hmm something I would check out but If I charge gas it's on my Exxon Card
I know they are not supposed to limit you either..those places that say all cc must be over $10.00

Well, if our salaries were getting 22 percentage hike, man that would be insane-happy. But seriously heating oil price is double and they are saying its goin still go higher, given that option Im leaning towards gas still. Kicking myself.. should have stayed in the rented apartment.. miss that now!

Energy costs are the 800 pound gorilla in the room that there seems to be no answer for right now. There's a lot of bitching and moaning about the increases (and rightfully so) but there seems to be no real solution to the problem, other than what apvbguy and myself (half jokingly) suggested: move south.

Passed by Norton Oil in Washington today. Cash price for heating oil is down to $3.99/gal from $4.19/gal two weeks ago. Never thought I would be happy to see $3.99/gal.
