......security cameras caught them returning the next night and taking another 300 gallons of gas, some of it going to a tank in the truck's bed.
He said they came back again during store hours and siphoned 300 more gallons, but a cashier recognized the suspicious vehicle and took down its license plate.
Sandhu estimates the stolen gas was worth $4500.
The price of gasoline hit an all-time average high in California of $4.61 a gallon Saturday.

Gas prices set a record in California "Several service stations are charging more than $5 a gallon for regular gasoline. Some have stopped selling gas because they dont want to pay the high wholesale price, which reached a record Thursday....."
Steal high, sell low
"....Among new details, Romney promised to double the number of drilling permits approved on federal lands, to open Alaska to more oil exploration and to "build that pipeline from Canada if I have to do it myself."...
Way too many people do not understand how siphoning works.
I believe that is unlikely that thieves could siphon gasoline from an underground storage tank in to a tank in their truck bed.
Siphoning is a process by which a fluid is moved from a higher elevation to a lower elevation through a tube by the actions of gravity and vacuum. This is a very simple principle which the average reporter should know.
Being that the gasoline is at a lower elevation in the underground tank a pump would be required to move the gasoline from the tank to the truck.
“Several service stations are charging more than $5 a gallon for regular gasoline.”
Five dollar gas will swing California to Romney!
Even in Texas I hear that gas is $5.00 a gallon!
‘Even in Texas I hear that gas is $5.00 a gallon!.
Regular about $3.30 yesterday afternoon at the corner gas dispensary near IH-35 and US-190...
The one thing I like about the clown in the White House is that he made me appreciate $3.00 gasoline...
Reverse that EO that Bill Clinton made by closing that park that had clean coal for mining.
“build that pipeline from Canada if I have to do it myself.”... in the mean time while the pipeline is being built have oversized railroad tanker cars shipping that oil to our refineries pronto.
reverse the rule forcing those 1,000 different blends
reverse the ethanol mandate
Those alone would do a lot of good
Let the Liberals pay the extra cost of the “ Special Blends “ of Gasoline, while us poo folk ( for those in Rio Linda, that’s poor people ) get the relief of cheaper gasoline.

That is pretty darn brazen, isn’t it? Very bold.
This is not a good sign.
Might give them a excuse to call out the national guards in California..
California will be the star domino in the administrations domino effect. They are already on the brink
Well, they supposedly have a license plate number...
I can’t imagine that just everybody buys 300 gallon tanks, either.
This is sad but I hope it is just some illegal aliens that have a pot farm in the woods and said F-it to the cost of fuel.
And they know it.
