It’s one thing to use a credit card to rack up air miles, but what if your main mode of transportation is a car?

A credit card that earns points at the pump could be worthwhile.

American Express’ Blue Cash Preferred gets you three percent cash back at gas stations and certain department stores, and six percent at supermarkets.

It comes with a $75 annual fee, but you get a $150 credit if you spend $1,000 in the first three months after activation.

The Wells Fargo Propel 365 Credit Card earns three points per dollar on all gas purchases and two points on restaurants. The first year is free and it’s $45 after that.

Chase Freedom doesn’t have any annual fee, and earns one percent back on all purchases.

Plus, every three months it offers additional four percent cash back deals at a rotating list of gas stations, retail stores, and grocery stores.
