A few states have laws banning credit card surcharges, but in most places it was the merchant agreement, not the law, that forbid surcharges. In 2012 Visa lost a major court case and lost the ability to enforce that clause.

In my experience it's very common for gas stations to surcharge credit card users, although they describe it as a cash discount. (The discounted price is usually the one they display on the sign, however.)
