There are also gas cards that are affiliated with a gas station but can be used anywhere, such as the Shell Credit Card. This type of cards also require good credit or better.
If you have less than fair credit, consider getting a secured credit card to pay for your gas purchases. The odds of approval are higher because you’ll have to put up a security deposit to set your credit limit. The deposit is fully refundable when you close the account without an outstanding balance.
In addition, secured cards work like regular credit cards, which means you can use them anywhere credit cards are accepted. An ideal secured card for gas purchases is the Bank of America® Customized Cash Rewards Secured Credit Card. It offers 3% cash back in a category of your choice, 2% back at grocery stores and wholesale clubs (up to $2,500 spent quarterly in the 3% and 2% categories combined), and 1% back on all other purchases. And you can choose gas as your category for the supplemented 3% cash back rate.
