It is not a conspiracy, well not anymore anyway. Since you are in the UK, I can only assume you did not experience the "cash" discount days at gas stations here in the U.S.  It was fact, someone else will back me up here...right guys...anyone...anyone...

And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

You got 4 cents a gallon back if you paid cash. I remember.

If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

actually about fifteen years ago I was an exchange student in Kansas (I am getting old) which apart from being a bit of a culture shock, gave me the opportunity to drive around a bit in the US.  I do seem to remember getting a discount for cash - oh and also credit cards were all processed with that slidey thing rather than electronically so you could go WAY over your limit...[/i]

The reason they did that is to cover the surcharges from the credit card processing companies.  When I had my business, I was being charged 1% for Visa & MC, 2.5% for American Express and 4% for Discover.  Now adays, I'm sure they just pass that on to everyone.
