3 Best Gas Credit Cards

Looking to get more cash back when you pay at the pump? Here are our top 3 credit card for gas rewards. PNC tops the charts with 4% back on purchases, but Blue Cash Preferred and Bank of America Cash Rewards are both strong offers at 3%. Pay attention to earning caps, but as long as you aren't spending more than $500 a month on gas you should be alright. Don't forget to stack this with the Shell Fuel Rewards program to earn an additional 5 cents back per gallon. If the top three don't rev your engine, you have other options.
