Gas Station Drive-Offs Continue

Gas-and-go service has taken on a negative connotation as some gas customers, without an old fashion attendant to pump for them, simply fill up and leave the station without paying. Other than the occasional forgetful driver, who usually returns red-faced, within minutes, fuel stations across the region have been experiencing continued drive-off gas thefts that are costly and often unsolved, Maysville area station operators said. In Maysville, the former Shell station on Second Street is often a prime target for theft, police officials said.
