Williston service station battles gas drive-offs

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- Gas drive-offs have become more common in Williston as the region's population booms.

One station, West Side Fuel, reported more than $34,000 in losses in 2012 due to drive-offs, in which people fuel up their vehicles and then drive off without paying.

The station last year implemented a policy in which potential customers have to provide identification before the store will turn on a pump, but employee Myla Hallgrimson says thieves are now turning to fake or stolen IDs.  The station last year still had about $6,300 in gas drive-off losses, and a growing collection of discarded IDs.
