My trips are limited to work, the supermarket, and the mini mart on $1 Texas Weiner day. I can go two weeks, maybe even a little more, between fill ups.
I think I'm like most Americans-- I have a few gas station branded credit cards that get you a few cents off a gallon. Over the course of a year, it probably saves me enough to buy a peppermint pattie (small, generic brand).
Is it too much to ask gas station operators to maintain their pumps so they spit out a receipt the way it should. Very few function the right way. It means walking in to the store to get one from the clerk, and being forced to wait behind a line of people looking to pick up their Cash 5 tickets. Or, you can just skip it, and write it down when you get home.
You see, I'm a fanatic about credit card receipts, and even clerks these days assume you don't want one. They rarely ask. Hey, I want mine!
I've done too many stories on skimmers at pumps, fraud and identity theft. Retailers could help fight crime by getting their equipment working the right way.
