Frankly I think you should catch up with the rest of the world and have no difference between cash and credit!
The difference is that on the rest of the world the credit card tax is a burden on the seller's side, not pushed up into the client like in the US. Not defending any side, just getting the facts straight. Here in Portugal because it would be inconceivable to have different prices for cash, debit or credit cards, some stores are trying to avoid accepting cards, either officially and publicly (major supermarkets rejecting any payment less than €20) or discretely (restaurants pretending the "system doesn't work").
So in this US vs. world case, I see the point of view from the US sellers, but the rest of the world decided that if the pandora box is opened, the chaos will happen - exactly what you're getting with the fuel prices.
From the Waze side, I agree with the US champs - a price is a price, if the cash is the price and credit is a overtax, then credit is irrelevant for waze. Here we have the opposite - it's quite normal to get cheaper prices by using cross-brand vouchers (buy fuel, get discount on the supermarket, buy on the supermarket, get discount on the fuel), but those discounted prices that, in practice, everybody with some smarts can get, are not relevant for Waze. Sticker price is what matters.
