Re: Paying for fuel

The US doesn't have such laws at present, but the fuel pumps here are leaning more towards NFC, especially with NFC payment on the rebound with Android and Apple Pay. Sonic Drive-In uses a numeric code combined with their app. When you want to pay by app, you punch the code (likely a one-time-use code coordinated with a central clearinghouse) in the app and the clearinghouse coordinates the purchase.
