Re: I forgot to pay for petrol

I've never forgotten to pay but once in the early 90's returning from Geneva and (unusually) having very little cash on me, I filled up with petrol at a station in the Valais clearly displaying a Visa sign and taking onboard about CHF 110 worth. I went in to pay and was told they no longer accept credit cards and I'd have to pay cash.
Years ago (25) we did a trip from the UK to Italy and we had read that credit cards aren't really taken anywhere. We stopped to get petrol and I went inside and said "credit card?" holding the card up. I handed it over, the lady did something with it and gave it me back and that was that. I walked out got in the car and drove away. When we got back I checked my card statement and the charge was never made and I also never got anything from the police etc.

With a common currency and a common market, on average each customer will save some 0.x% of the price of any good and service (let's forget about the fact that a customer is often an employee ...) but in the pre-EU times you could save 100% of the price while retaining 100% of your salary!
