We all know that the rising fuel prices are problematic for many people. People are having to be very cautious about how and when they use their car and need to ensure they maximise the use of petrol. And the problem of high fuel prices is not only a concern for the customer, but also for the garage owner.

As more and more people are feeling the pinch, garage owners have reported an increase in the amount of people who fill their North Devon 4×4 car up and drive off without paying.  There has also been a surge in those who fill up and then struggle to pay as their card declines and garages will no longer take a cheque for petrol.

And the problem does not stop there. Over the last three years, gangs of organised criminals have started syphoning petrol stations of there fuel. Only last week a petrol station in the North West of the country was a victim of this type of theft. The garage owners have insurance to cover their loss but with excess so high it is still going to put a strain on the family run business which has been built up over the last 20 years.And the problem does not stop there.

The fuel which is being stolen from forecourts all over the UK is then sold on the black market for a highly reduced price. The thieves have eager customers and these are not people who normally engage in criminal activity but simply those who need to make ends meet and are prepared to try and save a few pennies. And with the hike of prices continuing, criminals can expect to cash in for a good amount of time to come.
