Thread: Locking gas caps now in short supply

  1. #1
    The word from Pittsburgh is that auto parts suppliers are rapidly selling out of locking gas caps, which were originally invented in the 30s because of gas thefts during the Great Depression. Buyers are reporting their gas tanks have been siphoned, or that they want to head off potential siphoning due to ever-rising gas prices. Some stores are having difficulty getting more units in stock from manufacturers. If ever there were a time to kick yourself over having gone with that SUV, this looks like it.

    See, that's the reason some people need seven guns in their homes.
