Is it legal to have a surcharge for credit or debit card? Some of the businesses in my town (Bemidji, Minnesota) are doing this.

It is generally not a question of legality, some credit card companies prohibit the use of a surcharge for the use of a credit card or debit card and the business could get in trouble with them, but it is generally legal for the business to institute the charge.
