As summer approaches, Americans can expect to spend an average of $3.86 per gallon of gas, a figure 40 percent higher than last summer, says CardHub.com, using data provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Many people feel powerless as figures climb at the pump, and assume driving slower, driving less, or ditching their vehicles for smaller, more fuel-efficient cars is the only answer. For some motorists, a smart refueling option might be a gas station credit card. Here are CardHub.com’s top three picks for the best gas station credit cards:
