Re: Shell Gas $99 hold for $10 worth of gas

I think it's definitely a merchant decision, and to that effect individual gas stations. My usual stations (one of which is a shell) is a $1 hold. Went down to miami for the weekend and used a shell there as well as a shell close to the airport before returning the rental car and hold were 99 and 95! I was shocked initially, then realized it will fix itself... hopefully.
