US gas station hacked to sell fuel cheaper


Gasoline prices are on the rise

Virginia Beach, Virginia police have arrested two men who somehow broke into a local gas station. Their goal was to get cheap fuel, which they then resold at a discount to other people. These are the Robin Hoods.

The detainees gained illegal access to gas stations and then sold gasoline at a reduced price through an app and advertised the operation on social media. The police determined that thousands of dollars worth of gasoline had been stolen from the station over the course of several days.

It is noted that the Americans, rather, supported the criminals. They noted that the guys were just trying to make fuel more affordable.

Let’s remind, the prices for gasoline in the USA continue to update historical records. It is assumed that fuel is becoming more expensive due to rapidly growing inflation and uncertainty in the global energy market, largely related to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
