Costco Gas Hours: What Times Does Costco Gas Open & Close (24/7?)

Like many other popular Grocery store brands, Costco offers a Gas pump service to their customers, offering competitive prices and easy-to-use pumps.

As such, you may be wondering what the Costco Gas hours are, if Costco Gas closes, and what the best times are to purchase it. Here is what I have managed to find out!

Costco Gas Hours: Opening & Close Times 

Costco Gas opens between 5am – 9am, and closes between 7pm – 10pm, Monday to Friday. For weekends, Costco Gas opens from 7am and closes between 6pm – 8pm. Customers can fill up at Costco Gas even if a Costco Warehouse is closed as they have different operating hours.

How To Find Your Local Costco Gas Hours

While Costco Gas Station hours are very similar around the country, there are slight variations on hours for particular stores and locations.

To find your local Costco Gas opening and closing hours, you can use the Costco Store Finder.

Once on the website, simply add in your city, state, or Zipcode to find your closest store. Once you have clicked on your store, navigate to the “Warehouse Services” drop-down menu and select “Gas Station”.

This will now show you the opening and closing times for your local Costco Gas (see below example).

It is important to view the hours under the “Gas Station” tab as Costco Gas has different hours to the Costco Warehouse.

Does Costco Gas Open On Public Holidays?

Costco Gas operates by a standard holiday schedule, so Gas cannot be purchased around such holidays as Christmas, Independence Day, or New Years Day, to name a few.

This also applies to the General Costco stores that they are attached to.

What Is The Best Time To Get Gas At Costco?

Because Costco offers competitive prices, they can very often become incredibly busy.

Generally, the best time to travel to Costco Gas stations is during off-peak hours (10am – 1pm and 7pm – 10pm), especially those times when the main Costco store is closed, but the Gas station is still operating.

How Do You Pay For Costco Gas?

Costco Gas accepts a wide variety of payment methods, which can be used directly at the pumps to pay for Gas. However, there are a few caveats.

If you wish to pay via a Credit Card, then it must be done using a Visa Credit Card as Costco does not accept MasterCard, Amex, or EBT.

Contactless payment is offered at the pumps, allowing for such methods as Apple Pay, Android, and Google Pay.

Can You Pay For Costco Gas With Cash?

Unfortunately, cash is not accepted at Costco pumps, and cannot be handled by attendants.

However, if customers still wish to pay with cash, they can purchase a Costco Shop Card, which can be used to pay at the pumps.

How Are Costco Gas Able To Offer Such Competitive Prices?

Costco Gas usually aims to sell at 30 cents lower than their nearest competitors. Costco prides themselves on their affordability, which is partly driven by their membership model.

The cost of membership means that Costco is able to offer their products, including their Gasoline, at very affordable prices.

Conclusion: Does Costco Gas Close?

Yes, Costco Gas does close, around 10 pm on weekdays and 7 pm on weekends. Costco Gas also closes on major holidays. However, Costco Gas operates on separate hours from general Costco stores, so they open at the early time of 6 a.m, allowing for early birds to take advantage!
