I've always wondered that. Some stations pumps have a sticker that says $50 Visa and $75 master card limit. And the sticker says it isn't from the station, that it is mandated by the credit card companies. Then other stations have a $75 limit on visa. Then still other stations have no limit. When filling up my SUV I just put my Visa back in and run it again.

I've never seen a sticker posting card limits on a pump. Right when the price first spiked I had problems with some stations stopping @ $50, but all I ever did was just put the card back in and pump more.

The stations have also placed a 10 gallon limit on gas sales because of low supply. I don't know whether this will be a national trend or not, but if gas hasn't gone up or been limited where you live you might want to fill up.
I hope everyone is preparing for the next few months, Hurricane Ike will be added to a long list of excuses for why fuel prices will go throught the roof in the next few months. (as if they are not already there....)

I just hope the oil rigs are ok down there. the price of gas does affect me since im jobless for now, but i drive very little in the city. i just feel bad for the low wage workers who have to feed their family and still have to drive to work.

I will need to do some heavy hauling next week, I guess I need to drive the Buick some more to save that gas in the truck for the hauling so I don't have to buy any gas next week. Give these storms a chance to clear out and get fuel production back online.

When something is in short supply, prices go up. There is no such thing as "price gauging". If you don't like the price, you're welcome to not buy it. 20% of the refinaries in the US are shutdown for this storm. Don't be surprised to see $6 and $7 per gallon in the next few days as oil drops below $100 per barrel. This too shall pass. The oil bubble has burst and with the world in recession it will continue to collapse. This hurricane is just a blip.

So far, as of this evening, I haven't seen any rise in prices here in California. Not to say they couldn't shoot up tomorrow morning, but so far nothing.
