Gas siphoning is on the rise.
As the cost of gas continues to skyrocket, gas siphoning is gaining popularity. In fact, there are even instructional videos showing how to do it on YouTube. What the...?
Gas is over four bucks a gallon in many parts of the country, and has shot up 59 cents a gallon in just two months. So it would really piss us off if someone decided to siphon the "liquid gold" from our minivans!
Here's how to protect yourself, courtesy of Gazette.net:
• Buy a locking gas cap, which costs from $10 to $20.
• Park in an attended garage or lot, or in your garage.
• Leave only the ignition door key with an attendant if parking in an attended lot. Don't give the attendant a key that can open the trunk or glove box. Check the gas gauge upon returning to ensure gas has not been siphoned.
• Park in a lighted area while on the streets at night. Thieves may also be discouraged by parking close to a corner, where they are more likely to be observed.
