I thought this was really a great idea. This card allows you to swipe the card then go inside to pay via credit card or cash. This is so you can start pumping gas before you pay. The reason this is useful is they do not turn on any pumps until you pay cash or credit card. But I want to use my credit card inside so I can charge my Jolt Cola and porn mags on the same bill. What a dilemma! They basically put you drivers license on file (not sure why they don’t use video cameras)?
