AL - Husain 'Tony' Caddi, 54, killed in gas station drive-off, 19 Aug 2005
The case of an Alabama gas station owner run down Friday and killed by a driver who police believe was escaping with $52 worth of fuel comes as no shock to U.S. industry experts.
"As the price of gas climbs, people's values decline," said Jeff Lenard, spokesman for the National Association of Convenience Stores.
Lenard said the death of Husain "Tony" Caddi, 54, has captured national media attention for two reasons: It shows that soaring gas prices make people angry enough to steal, and gas retailers are tired of putting up with it.
Police say Caddi, owner of the Fort Payne Texaco, was killed when he grabbed hold of a vehicle and the driver dragged him across a car park and onto a highway. Caddi fell from the vehicle and was run over by the vehicle's rear wheel. A search for the driver and a gold or tan Jeep-style SUV continued Monday.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

As sad as this is, I can believe it. There's another thread on gas prices and I learned some folks are dropping close to $100 in the gas tank! And I'll repeat myself from that thread...my loan officer called and I got approved for a fillup.
