Getting gassed at the pump...

When you go to a gas station, make sure what you think you're paying is actually what the pump is charging you.  Some stations have cheaper prices when you pay cash, and clearly have the cash price displayed separately from the charge card price, as required in Connecticut, but not all of them are so clear.  Many stations across the U.S. add a surcharge when you use a card, which you don't see until after you swipe, and if you don't check the price on the pump after swiping, you may not know it.  Always check the pump display after swiping your card and before pumping to see the actual price.
