Year 2015 Singapore’s Best Credit Cards Review Series — Best Credit Cards for Petrol

Owning a car and supporting it is so expensive now but you have to do it if looking at the crowded public transport makes you want to faint or if you have a family with kids whom you need to fetch to and fro their schools or childcare. A great way to cut down on the monthly costs especially for those who use their car for work, is to choose the right credit card that gives you the best perks for petrol!
