GAS IS OUT OF CONTROL!!!

No...I really mean it this time! This is important announcement. DO NOT...I repeat...DO NOT use your debit card when paying at the pump. You will be robbed clean! All the major gas companies have a new arrangement with your local banks to take out a $100 pre-authorization from your checking account everytime you swipe your debit card. They used to only pull $1.00 from your account, but now they've really upped the ante. This is no joke! Don't trust me? Fine. Just don't come crying to me when you find out that you have to wait a whole week for those ever-so-trustworthy oil companies to pay you back for the cash that they practically stole from you. I contacted my bank, and they said that they just became aware of the issue and said that they will not release my funds back into my checking account for at least a week (when the authorization actually expires). Although, I was given the option to visit my bank and fill out a despute form, which will take about 2 days to process. Meanwhile, the oh-so poor oil company that took from my wife gets a hefty loan. Oh, in case you're wondering which oil company is ripping us off...it's um...well...it's the opposite of Moon-O-Co.
