Just a heads-up, a lockable gas cap is worth it. In my area the prices for gas have gone over the $3.00 mark .


With Pain At The Pump, Thieves Are Throwing Back To Siphoning Gas

May 11, 2018 at 11:31 pmFiled Under:Gas Prices Soar, Gas Thieves, Newport Beach, Siphoning Gas


NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA)   — With gas prices soaring, thieves are doing their best to get a fill-up without going to the pump.

Gas siphoning is back.

As KCAL9’s Stacey Butler reports, people in Newport Beach are waking up to a new reality.

“From inside of my house, I could see something was on the asphalt,” says one man, who didn’t want to be identified. “I went over, check it, my gas cap was wide open. I went over, and noticed they siphoned about a quarter tank of my gas.”

Snippet from article:
"He never thought his 1990 Chevy Blazer would catch the attention of thieves. But later model cars without locking gas caps make for easy targets."

$2.84 per gallon average in our neck of the woods right now. Just 6 cents more than a couple weeks back yet the trend has been nothing but upward

I could go for a $3 price cap on regular gas, but unfortunately there's no lock on that!

Would you believe we're up a dime in just a week's time?

Rate it's going we'll be there well before Memorial Day

Regular gas per gallon in SE WI has gone up 13 cents in a week for a total of 29 cents in the last month

Dayum. Just when I was getting used to gas prices in the $2/gal neighborhood.

Wow. That beats us by more than a quarter, and today's AAA national average by more than 20 cents!

I read there's various refinery issues causing the recent spike. Won't be long now, we'll get dinged when they go to the SE WI spring "attainment zone' blend. And another jump with the summer driving season

At any price at least there's gas to be had, compared to if the Green New Deal ever gets implemented. Then again, they'll be no need for cars once we're all zipping around on high speed rail.

Another spike, up 10 cents per gallon here this last week

We're about a nickel under the national average of $2.54

That's almost a quarter more than it was a month ago

OTOH it's only a penny more than it was this time last year

In any case the price is going up and I DON'T LIKE IT
