7-Eleven collected 16,582 customer signatures this summer across Arizona to help it fight what it calls unfair credit card transaction fees.

In June, the convenience store chain launched a million-signature petition campaign to ask Congress to restrict interchange fees charged whenever a customer uses either a credit or debit card for a purchase. The petitions were in every 7-Eleven store.

Nationally, 7-Eleven collected more than 1.66 million signatures and will present the signatures to Congress Wednesday.

Greg Lee's 7-Eleven store at 815 S. Dobson Road in Mesa collected 787 signatures, the highest number among all 78 7-Eleven stores in the state. Lee attributes his store's successful petition drive to having employees who were knowledgeable about the issue and talked about it to customers.
