frank, if hess can sell gas for the same price...cash or credit...so can you and other stations that follow your policy. i realize the credit card companies charge stations for customers' use of cards, but certainly not the premium of 10 to 15 cents/gallon, which many stations charge. the bulk of stations' profit should come from the sale of gas, not the extra charge for credit. how can other non-gas businesses accept credit, even for a cup of coffee, without the imposition of an extra fee for card use? let's face it, it surely appears to be a rip-off scheme...in addition, why do stations prominently display the credit card logos encouraging customers to use the cards for gas purchases? station owners certainly deserve to "turn a profit," that goes without saying, but the bulk of the profit should come from gas sales, not the additional fees charged for credit card use. gas prices, with their ridiculous additional taxes, is expensive enough without adding another burdensome tariff for customers to shell out. economic times are bad enough. station operators, live in the NOW. CREDIT PURCHASES ARE HERE TO STAY!

Just like a chef can eat at a chinese buffet, In America a business can charge what they wish. As an American you have a choice not to shop there. Stop your complaining and just go to another station.

Why so nasty? Why can't they complain?

CHEF.The reason Hess can charge one price is that most of the Hess Stations are not independently owned. They can absorb the credit card fees because they are a huge corporation with thousands of locations. The independent gas retailer has to make his profit from only one location. We are not making any extra on the credit card price, we are just covering the cost of the credit card fees.The reason that other businesses don't charge more for credit card purchases is that their profit margin for their products are much greater than the gas margins. I would rather sell 1000 cups of coffee a day on a credit card, than sell 5000 gallons a day of gas for cash! You will never see any station charge more on a credit card for any purchase inside their store or for a repair.

From my new HESS post DFUSCO 7:49 pm on Monday, January 16, 2012 Yep...I know a lot about the business as someone related to my family had a station and filled me in on all the issues. He claimed to make no money on gas and relied on cigarette sales ,the cigarette advertising money and repairs. for money to live. I met the last owner of the subject closed station in this article through a mutual friend right before he opened it (for the last time) and shared with him the stories - he didn't think it could be true but didn't last too long at that spot. So the question is why do stations everywhere else but LI charge the same price cash or credit and why doesn't every other business out there do the same two price thing. The topic of this story though is the town not wishing to grant a zoning change to a station to allow a convenience store with their new station under the ruse of traffic issues - Maybe Hess needs that other source of income to stay in business as well. I guess we can tell by the number of stations that have closed over the last few years that gas is a tough business- the amount of $ you need to lay out for each delivery these days to make the same 10 cent profit , the regulations, etc. but thats the business you guys chose. Every business is tough these days and it is still somewhat hard to feel sorry when your "bosses" are making record $100's billions in profit while we gas buyers are struggling to fill our tanks - all along claiming "its not our fault"
