Gas rant

As we all know gas prices are getting crazy. Surprisingly enough that is not what I am about to rant about :)
To be honest I am lucky enough to be able to afford gas and will probably always be able to fill my tank. I know a lot of people are being negatively affected and I do sympathize so don't take this post wrongly. Gas prices here have doubled, even tripled and they have yet to change the maximum amount of gas you can put in. I tried to fill my tank today as quickly as possible because 3 of 5 were sleeping and I was in no mood for them to wake up and need to go pee in the filthy restrooms. I slid my debit card in and requested a fill. As soon as the pump reached $100 it stopped and said authorization limit reached!!! $100 got me less than half a tank meaning I would have to go through the authorization process 3 times. Are you kidding me??!! Now I'm not one to complain about things I have no control over which is why I've kept my mouth shut thus far. I need gas there is nothing else I can do right now, but for pete sake let me buy the gas in an efficient timely manner. I'm not going to put up a fuss every time the price at the pump goes up so in return I would like to be able to FILL MY TANK!!!!
