Best Gas Credit Cards for Cash Back: Top 5 Fuel Cards 2017

For most people, gas is a large majority of their transportation expenses. In this post, we're going to talk about cards that give at least 4-5% cash back for gas. We're going to ignore the 5% quarterly cards. 

You can view credit card offers by going to the "Credit Card Offers" tab. Find offers for the respective cards in "Gas Rewards Credit Cards." You don't have to use our links, but we're grateful when you do. Thank you for supporting AskSebby!

5. Costco Anywhere Visa Card

  • 3% on restaurant and eligible travel purchases worldwide
  • 2% on Costco and Costco.com purchases

One thing to be aware of is that you can only redeem cash back once a year, and you need a Costco membership to get the card. 

If you're someone who's going to cancel the card after a year because you're moving, then it's a weird situation where you might need to renew the Costco membership to receive the cash back rewards.
