Why is there a hold for my gas station charge?

We recommend that you pay for gas inside at the register with your Suvi card. If you pay directly at the pump, gas stations do not know the amount of gas that you actually pumped and the final amount of sale. They can therefore hold up to $125.00 when you swipe your card. Usually, they release the hold within 2 hours, but sometimes it can take up to a day or two.
