Which credit card should I open (or decide between) for a business (NY/NJ area) that needs to buy a lot of gas for many vehicles?
We have amex plat biz, ink prefered, Ink cash, Amex Gold & another amex plat biz. Or should we be using one of the ones we have had opened for 3+yrs (all cards have been opened and used for 3+ yrs and are used regularly)
TIA.

(should we consider opening a shell card and go directly for the "fuel rewards" program)

Look for a secured card to build your credit.
