Although the fee does seem to vary - but it's about ~3%.
I think this is why sometimes if you go to smaller gas station or c-store they require people using cards to make at least a $5 purchase, or some sort of limit so they are at least forcing you to purchase more items to make more of a profit for assisting you than if you just bought a pack of gum with a card.

What I do is try to pay cash for purchases under $10, and I'd have no problem if that was made a requirement. I think it's reasonable to expect a merchant to make a profit on a transaction and if the card knicks them for three percent on a five percent markup the two percent that's left isn't going to pay even the overhead on a small transaction.

In credit card you can buy today and pay later in debit card you need to pay today and buy today.
