May 25, 2004 - And drivers think they have it bad! Nationwide, the price of 100 low lead aviation gasoline is averaging over $3 per gallon. And as with automobile gasoline, there's no price relief in sight.
But there is a way to find some relief - use the AOPA member credit card featuring the 5% FBO Rebate and save up to $250 annually at the pump or on other purchases made at qualified FBOs.
Cardholders receive a 5% credit rebate on purchases, including fuel, from qualified fixed-base operators as listed in AOPA's Airport Directory. And now you can even request these rebates online.
"AOPA might not be able to do anything about the price at the pump," said AOPA President Phil Boyer, "but we can help hold your final cost down. And because MBNA America, the card issuer - is a Member Products partner, AOPA receives revenue back based on your participation in this program. So you can save while you support AOPA's mission to protect the interests of general aviation."
