How is it legal for a gas station to charge two different prices based on how you pay?

I understand that there is a credit card charge, but how can a gas station legally charge 10 to 15 cents more per gallon for using a credit card?

I see it the same as charging someone $2.99 for a gallon of milk if they pay with cash, but $3.15 if they pay with a credit card.

It's perfectly legal according to the law.

It is, however, against the policies of all the major credit card companies in the US. However, enforcement of this policy is left to the individual banks, and the only consequence is being dropped as a merchant. So if someone complains, all that will happen is that the gas station won't be allowed to accept the card anymore.
