Drive-through gas thefts could cost the guilty their drivers license. With fuel prices going up, gas station operators say there’s been a rise in the number of gasoline thefts at service stations. The Iowa Senate has passed a bill that would take away the driving privileges of people who fill ‘er up and take off without paying. The license suspension would last up to 30 days, and would be tacked on to the current penalties for theft. The bill has to pass the Iowa House and get the Governor’s signature before it becomes law. Twenty-four other states have such laws and gas station owners say the laws have helped reduce gas thefts significantly.
