You think the ever increasing price of gas is highway robbery?  Guess again. Apparently, there's a phenomenon of thieves casing women at gas stations and stealing their purses or whatever other valuables they may take from an unlocked vehicle.

This is CRAZY!!! It now makes me fearful of even pumping gas with my daughter in the car. If I pay at the pump, I usually leave her in the car because I'm standing right there.  Now, it appears that I'll have to take her out and lock the door JUST TO PUMP GAS IN SAFETY.

This is ridiculous. Another sign of the times.
