Example Example

A gasoline station owner charged more per gallon if payment was by credit card rather than with cash. The two-tier pricing system was not an imposition of an illegal surcharge for using a credit card, but rather, was a valid inducement to paying in cash based on the actual cost difference to the gas station owner.
