Mobil Gas Card Ripoff

Postby jhboston » Sun May 23, 2010 7:44 pm

I have been using my Mobil card Speedpass connected to my Mobil credit cardat a Mobil gas station on Berkeley Street in Boston for many years. Today when I went to use it I found that they now charge $.10 more per gallon to use their own card at their station. This is absurd, I recommend that you never use a Mobil card again. They rip you off any way they can.

Who is this card offered through>?? What Bank and Issuer, also is the fee assessed using the speed pass as opposed to the CC. This could be why, otherwise this sounds like a surcharge which is against state law in CA and all Visa Master cardholder agreements.

This is only charged on the Mobil gas card, not all credit cards?

At a local Mobil, gas is 10¢/gal higher if not paid in cash. They post the cash price on the big sign; only at the pump are two prices indicated. No other gas station around here does that and Mobil's cash price isn't great. Skip them.

yeh mobile is like luke oil there the 2 most expensive gas stations. I guess you can say they have the most gas stations in your area.
they have more gas stations than a lot of companys have combine. Exxon Mobile in my area just a 20 minute drive 1 way and a 10 minute
another Exxon Mobile has 5 while Citgo has 2 , Sunoco has 2 ect. If you have the charge card it would be ideal to use it. But if your in Discovers 5% rotating category and signed up, I would then go to other gas stations.
