Cash vs. Credit to Pay for Gas

The prices at the pump can be even cheaper if you pay with cash.

With high prices at the pump and bad credit scores, a new cash discount may be just the right help for motorists.

Some area gas stations are offering a deal which can pose an interesting choice for consumers.

A group of local gas stations is offering 5 cents off per gallon for those customers who pay with cash rather than with a credit card.

To some, it makes sense to use cash versus credit when paying for everyday purchases like gas.

A loan officer with the Marquette Community Federal Credit Union says for many consumers, especially college students, sometimes scraping together enough cash for expenses can be a challenge.

However, Loretta Miller says that college students especially should be mindful of charging items such as gasoline to a credit card because they often don’t have the means of paying it off.
