Best reward card when buying gas?

Best reward card when buying gas?

I'm still on secured cards right now as I'm rebuilding my credit. However, I'm spending about 400+ per month on gas and was thinking about getting a rewards card that will work well with that. I don't buy groceries often so that doesn't matter so much as far as rewards go. Anyone have any ideas for a good one?

I would have to say the PenFed Platinum Rewards Card, it offers 5% on gas, 3% groceries, and 1 % everything else. It is pretty hard to get, however as you can see it is really worth it.

 

I currently have a Discover More card and it offers 5% on gas from Jan - March, same for Chase Freedom.

GBpac12- that pedFed card offers 5 points on gas, 3 points on groceries, and 1 point on everything else for each dollar spent.    Points not dollars.  They do have a 5% cash back card with 0.25% cash back on everything else.   Unless you got a sweet card not listed on their website https://www.penfed.org/productsandrates/creditcards/rewardcards.asp

 

I'll be applying for that Fort Knox FCU card after I get a CLI on my Amex BCE card
