High Fire Danger Today

Pump & Run

Fill 'er up and drive away. Record highs on gas prices are turning some pumpers into criminals.

Sas stations across the country are getting a run for their money. Retailers say gas thefts have increased by as much as 3 times.

Thieves usually strike at the busiest times and use pumps farthest from the cashier, sometimes wearing hats so they can't be identified.

Some leave the hose on the ground so attendants don't know the car is finished filling up. They, then, make a getaway before anyone notices.
