Lawmakers Looking Into Legislation Against Drive-Offs

There is a heated debate in Frankfort over making it tougher to drive off with out paying for gasoline.

Lawmakers are trying to decide whether to give service stations more authority to stop gas thieves.

A bill up for debate in the General Assembly would give station workers the right to run a car's plates and charge the car's owner for stolen gas.

    Stop drive offs by having pay before pumping. May be inconvenient but just the price we pay for allowing thieves in our midst.

    What they should be doing is setting up legislation to put a cap on how much profit the oil companies can make . This country is spiriling down and the oil companies are the cause.

    To steal is the wrong way to get any thing one needs....then again, drive-offs are not the only theives when this occurs...has anyone thought about the price of gas and the slow process of checking out possible gouging? The lawmakers aren't taking into account the cost of everything due to the fix Big Oil has us all in. John Q. Public has to take at face value and pay whatever as companies like Exxon make forty-four billion plus in profit from our hard times...they aren't giving up any luxuries, they just take ours away from us! I just pray we all don't have to stoop to less than what we really are.
