Fuel Theft & Remote Monitoring - Why the two go hand in hand

February 24, 2012 (comments: 0)

Fuel theft in the US reach as high as  $8 Billion per year

Fuel prices rising by as much as 20% on an annual  basis  has encouraged and spurred on  petroleum wet stock theft from gas stations and truck stops.

This crime is now costing the United States billions of dollars per year according to industry statistics.

The rate of fuel theft is accelerating as climbing fuel prices tempt more and more people and even employees  to steal gasoline, diesel and even heating oil.

We all know that gas is getting pretty expensive. Industry experts  predict by spring,  gas prices will  probably be on average  $4.00 per gallon and as much as 5 bucks per gallon later this year.

Because of this hikes in gas prices some people are taking an extreme route to save money.

Tuesday February 21, 2012 at 1am in Hillsborough County Florida a van pulled into a local BP station and attempted to steal gasoline from the underground storage tanks into their vehicle. 

After some time the thieves left the scene leaving behind several hundred gallons of gasoline in the vehicle as well as spilling gasoline on the station parking lot.

So, could this happen to you? Or more importantly, is it already happening. At your site after hours ( even during business hours)?  Are you protected from fuel theft??
