Anna, I called my bank and got a very nice lady! She told me that gas stations (I didn't even tell her the who; I just asked her the why) ususally will check to see if a dollar is available on the account to see if it is an open account before you get gas. Then, when you get gas, they will ask for the amount of gas that you got. So, the dollar is a way to verify your account. She stated that she didn't know why they do that, but that she noticed that it is usually gas stations.

Well, I learned something new.
