......now in many places targeting gas stations to steal fuels from underground tanks... Just two stories here:

https://news.yahoo.com/gas-station-manager-says-thieves-005404079.html

https://www.khou.com/article/news/c...285-e50a19b7-9530-4cce-94af-ab361b86eca5


I wonder how soon station owners will need to have actual security companies hired to watch over the tanks during closed hours? All due to Prez. Demento's anti-oil policies...

I saw this 2 minute video on the news last night, they are drilling holes in the bottom of the gas tank of cars. Looks like some dangerous stuff to me.

Maybe just follow Californiaโ€™s lead and forget about any fuel theft or drive off under 1000.00.
There, now the crime problem goes away.

As long as they are under the vehicle drilling holes in the gas tank, they might as well steal the catalytic converter also.

We'll know we've reached the appropriate 3rd world status when we have 300 people burned up as they try to scavenge gas from a tipped over tanker.

Just like the sunrise, it's coming.

Just the start of the war. Pretty soon, going to have to have an armed guard, in your vehicle to go to grocery store and fuel station.

These thieves are VERY FORTUNATE that the police have not been 100% defunded.

The only remaining safeguard they truly have...

Most thieves, politicians and .GOV and are far to stupid to realize that very thin line protecting them.

So be it.

Do believe that most modern 2004 and up gas tanks are made out of plastic with only a metal outer skin foot protection.

Excellent reminder to always carry matches or a cheap Zippo.

Coworker has two daughters that have each had catalytic converters stolen. I think they should put a bounty on thieves! Maybe turn it into a sport

Seriously? This I didn't know. Who buys them? I've always heard they were worth a pretty penny.

Scrappers buy them due to the rare metals in them. Thefts have been on the rise in WI for a long time over it.
