I contacted the gas station and was forwarded to their main office. They say that it's the bank's fault and that they required that much of a "deposit". They said they request $1.00 because my card has the Visa logo on it.
I contact my bank and they say that the gas station required it.
I get my gas at that gas station because I get fuel discounts for shopping at the grocery store attached to it. This has never happened before and if the savings on my gas weren't so great I would go elsewhere.
All I know is that I will not be paying at the pump ever again and I should be safe from this problem in the future.
