Pre Authorization

So today my card got loaded with $100 & I went to pump gas $25.99. I get online to check balance and it says $24.00.. $75 got withdrawn for pre authorization.. what the heck that has never happened to me before with this card before. Now I only have $24.00 until when??

    When you pay at an automated duel dispenser, a pre-authorization charge is made (by the gas station) for a set amount. It should be listed on the dispenser itself.

    The $75 charge is made by the gas station, to confirm that you have sufficient funds on the card to complete the transaction. It automatically expires within 7 business days.

    To avoid this charge, you can pay directly at the counter, and not at the automated fuel dispenser.
