With evidence, this varies wildly. I give it another few years before it comes to a head and someone in congress proposes a bill to quell it or add another layer of complexity. After all, it is how things work. You cannot remove old laws. You can only write new ones to say what parts of the old laws no longer apply. Mostly because laws have about 600 to 1,000 pages... on purpose. At least, that is what the experts tell me. [Singing... I am just a bill on Capitol Hill... I am too big to read... so I become a law because of my popular sounding title.... singing continues]wow, that has never happened to me. If I buy $5 worth of gas (which I did this morning on my Mastercard filling up my CB). The pump says $5 and gives me a receipt for $5 and when my bill comes, it says I bought $5 worth of gas at the station in Amelia, Ohio on 6/5/21. That's it. I pay the $5 when I get the bill and the cycle (pun) continues.
Do all people in Texas have this problem or just you?
It varies from pump to pump and card to card.
The evidence is above. This is why i started this thread. To show the wild west of credit card gas purchases.
I will be using a special safe credit card or an E-card from now on. The E-card is on my phone.
The E-card that I have (A gold plan - whatever the hell that means) clears the $100 deposit in minutes- replacing the deposit with the gas purchase amount. The other card... Hmmm. a week maybe. I can actually watch the numbers change on my phone.
