  1. This is leaving out an important demographic: people who pay in cash. I always pay in cash for my gas. Will I need to get up out of my car to hand the attendant my $28? Why not address this issue in the article? “Don’t worry, cash payers- your method is safe. HELL, this might even encourage MORE people to pay in cash since they don’t want to get off their butts! More cash payments means less people tracking your buying habits too… less potential for credit card and identity thievery, which, at gas stations, is a bigger threat than normal stores.. You get cash stolen, at least nobody got any account numbers.”
