Americans are painfully aware of how far thieves go to avoid legit employment and still make a few bucks. Many, myself included, have fallen victim to the catalytic converters thieves. But now, a new trend is popping up across the country – gas thieves.

Friday, in Fort Worth, Texas, KDFW reported that thieves driving a box truck outfitted with an extra tank in the bed stole 1,500 gallons of diesel fuel from a Chevron gas station, valued at $5,000.

KABC out of Los Angeles reported back in March 2022 that thieves were targeting gas stations and individual vehicles.

Imagine walking out to your car after a long day at work only to realize your vehicle is mysteriously out of gas. Then, adding insult to injury, you add the gallon of gas from your trusty gas station and notice the gas you just paid way too much for is leaking onto the pavement beneath your vehicle. Why? Because someone decided to drill a hole in your gas tank and steal your fuel.

Victims are left with a bill of approximately $1,000 to replace their gas tank, in addition to the devastating price at the pump.
