ARDMORE, Okla. -- Diesel fuel thefts are apparently on the rise. After a trucker reported last week more than $600 worth of fuel siphoned out of his rig as he slept inside, and on that same night more than $1,200 in diesel was stolen from trucks parked at a local trucking company, another $150 of diesel was reported stolen out of a truck in northwest Ardmore on Tuesday night.

Police advise drivers to buy locking gas caps, and always park overnight in well-lit areas.

"I think there’s been a small rash here recently. Again, with the prices way they are, I would think this kind of crime would go up," Ardmore police Deputy Chief Major Rickey Lawrence says.

Police are investigating the thefts to see if they may be related.

    So this makes it OK to steal? The problem here is that the trucker has DE-volved over the last decade into some glorified homeless person who lives in a metal box rather than a cardboard one. so many have been sold that trucking is so easy a caveman could do it.. trucking has sold out to the lowest bidder and cannot employ decent drivers so they are stuck with the dregs more and more. They then convince these dregs that becoming their own boss and LEASING a truck from them is the way to go.. they end up broke and even more bitter because they are simple minded fools who cannot do simple math. Truckers used to be a decent lot who cared about doing things correctly.. they are simple steering wheel holders now...

    THE REASON GAS COSTS SO MUCH IS BECAUSE CRUDE OIL IS VALUED IN US DOLLAR$. STAY WITH ME HERE; I KNOW IT IS CONFUSING. IF YOUR MONEY LOOSES VALUE, THEN IT WILL TAKE MORE MONEY TO PURCHASE THE SAME AMOUNT OF GAS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS MADE 15 TRILLION EXTRA DOLLARS IN THE LAST 40 YEARS. SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY MORE DOLLARS, EACH INDIVIDUAL DOLLAR IS WORTH LESS. IT IS CALLED INFLATION. PRICES ONLY APPEAR TO BE GOING UP. IT IS ACTUALLY THE FACT THAT THE VALUE OF THE DOLLAR IS FALLING. WHEN THEY WROTE THE CONSTITUTION, THEY SAID ONLY CONGRESS COULD MAKE THE MONEY AND ONLY BASE IT ON GOLD OR SILVER. IN THE EARLY 1900'S THEY BEGAN TAKING US OFF OF GOLD AND ALSO NOW WE PAY THE FED RESERVE (A PRIVATE BANK NOT PART OF OUR GOV'T) TO MAKE OUR MONEY. HURR DURR. IN THE 1920'S YOU COULD BUY AN OUNCE OF GOLD FOR $20. NOW IT TAKES $1000 TO BUY THE SAME OUNCE OF GOLD. THAT MEANS YOUR $1 IS WORTH 2 (TWO) 1920 CENTS! YOU ARE BEING RAPED AMERICA. ENJOY YOUR FAIL.
