As gas prices continue to go up and up, people are doing just about anything to find cheaper alternatives.
Here's one the government doesn't recommend: Stealing gas by using a universal key to unlock the pumps.
It's what this guy, above left, is suspected of doing at a Citgo station at Southwest Eighth Street and 22nd Avenue in Miami. He apparently let his buddies in on the scheme, too: Police say a total of five cars pulled up one after another, making off with a total of 100 gallons.
It seems similar to a 2006 gas-swiping scam in Baltimore, where gas stations reported a loss of about 4,000 gallons costing almost $12,000. That time, the thieves used a master key to reprogram the pumps so the store attendant didn't realize what was happening.
