Gas Credit Cards

Many credit cards give rewards on gas purchases, but a few specifically gas credit cards will give excellent rewards rates on fuel and not much on everything else. Thankfully, we gas-guzzling Americans have a number of cards that give bonuses on gas to some extent. Use the filter below to find the gas credit cards (some of which are from our partners) that are best for you. You can also use our gas price comparison tool to find the cheapest gas in your area, taking into account credit card rewards as well as fuel prices, and check out our top picks for the best gas credit cards.

  1. [2013-07-02 17:34:50] - NerdWallet says: Hey there, Your best bet might be one of the Hilton HHonors cards. The no-fee Amex Hilton HHonors gives 2.5% back on gas, groceries and restaurants, plus 3.5% back at the Hilton. The Amex Hilton HHonors Surpass gives 3% on gas, groceries and restaurants and 6% back at the Hilton, and though it has a $75 annual fee, you get perks to make up for it, like Gold status your first year and discounted Priority Pass airport lounge access. Keep in mind, though, that some gas stations won't accept Amex, so you might want to keep a no annual fee Visa or MasterCard in your pocket just in case.
  2. [2013-03-26 03:05:17] - disqus_dR87xT13ko says: Hi, Nerd Wallet advisors, I'm searching for a credit card that will give me maximum gas rewards and possibly even hotel benefits. I just recently acquired a commission based job where I travel often, but am not reimbursed for travel expenses. I need a card that will get me through until my commission check comes in each month. That being said, I will be paying the card off monthly. I also have good credit, a 709 rating, but I've only had credit for a little over 2 years. I have a maximum combined credit limit of $4,700 at the time, as I'm slowly but steadily building my credit history. I'm not willing to pay an annual fee, unless the benefits of rewards prove to be better than other cards even after paying the fee. Thanks in advance for your help!
  3. [2013-03-14 22:43:34] - NerdWallet says: Unfortunately, BofA caps your gas and grocery rewards (combined) at $1,500 spent per quarter. This means that if you buy $1,000 worth of groceries, then $500 of gas, you'll only get 2.3% rewards on average. The Chase Freedom, on the other hand, gives 5% rewards on bonus categories up to $1,500 spent, so your bonus rate is always 5% up to the limit. The Blue Cash Preferred gives an unlimited 3% on gas, and the PenFed Platinum gives 5% on gas (but you need uber-excellent credit to qualify).
  4. [2012-09-09 03:14:46] - better nerd says: Umm why are all these credit card review sites so anti-bank of america. BofA gives 3% on gas period plus $100 bonus for getting the card. Have fun with your 2%.
  5. [2012-04-10 09:20:24] - NerdWallet says: You can get a station-branded credit card that can only be used at gas stations, but they do limit you to just one station (for example, the Valero credit card will only let you spend at Valero.
  6. [2012-03-23 15:08:54] - NerdWallet says: Hm, we're not that familiar with Canadian credit cards. Commenters, any advice?
  7. [2012-03-23 13:48:12] - Wilt2028 says: which card would work best in canada
  8. [2012-03-04 15:14:57] - J $ says: PenFed Platinum Rewards = Best Cash Back Credit Card... EVER! 5% gas, 3% supermarket, 1% everything else, low APR, no annual fees, these percentages/categories don't rotate! $250 easy sign-up bonus... There is no comparison.
  9. [2011-07-29 14:53:39] - Richard says: PenFed is Great! 5% cash back credited right to your statement. No waiting No asking for it it is Automatic.Gives 1% cash back on everything else.It's good at any station, with pay at the pump. Has a 2% bonus on dining until end of August.This is a great card for gas.Get another to meeet your other spending habits. Richard
  10. [2011-06-27 03:31:42] - NerdWallet says: PenFed is a credit union, and it requires excellent credit, so make sure you have the right checkboxes selected, then you'll see it.
  11. [2011-06-27 03:03:04] - Guest says: Where's the PenFed card?
