Today’s Bottom Line column (with thanks to readers):
Consumers have a voice, especially in the we’re-in-this-together world of The Bottom Line. So after a recent column about cash vs. credit gasoline pricing in the state (read it at cour.at/12vmB9X), we’re turning this one over to you:
“Your Aug. 25 column seems to support the notion that consumers are getting a ‘discount for cash’ vs. a ‘surcharge for credit.’ The concept of ‘discount vs. surcharge’ is a ‘glass half-empty, half-full’ conundrum.
“Any reasonable observation of the marketplace [reveals] certain stations are really charging a ‘surcharge for credit.’ The original discount for cash concept is a failure, and the reality is that the stations are charging a surcharge for credit card use.”
