Why did the gas station overcharge me?

We do not recommend to our members that they load at the pump.

Gas stations can hold up to $125.00 when you swipe your card because they do not know the final amount of the sale (that is, the amount of gas that you actually pump). Usually they release the hold within two (2) hours, but at most, it's a day or two. You can avoid this situation in the future by paying for your gas inside at the register.
