When I was living in California, a lot of the convenience stores only accepted debit cards. If the transaction was below $5, the would charge a 50-75 cent fee to cover their processing fee. Considering that most merchants pay a 20-25 cent transaction fee plus 2.7% of the transaction amount, this seems fair.
