That they NEED to switch over to PRE-PAID. 

Every gas station has the option to prepay, but you can still pump first and back after.

Now just within a week the police department has reported that theres been $350 in stolen gas. Atleast one drive off every day for the last 8 days, minus christmas. 

One gas station was ripped off three days in a row, and they arent changing a thing about it. My friend works at that Caseys and she said its unconvientant for the clerk to have to do it all prepaid. 

Well its gonna be unconvieniant for me if gas prices sky rocket because their allowing these idiots to do that.

Im sure this is common in bigger cities, but this is a town of 18,000 people and only 6 gas stations. Eventually, they should catch on. 

Yup. Just my rant.

They still do that in my old home town too.  They tried to switch to prepaid a few years ago (one or two gas stations did) and people stopped going there for gas.

We always prepay since that is one way to stop going over budget for gas.

All the gas stations here have the option too pump first. Which is kinda dumb if you ask me, although i'm lazy and prefer to not prepay;

How is it not convient?

Ive worked at a gas station, and all you do is punch in the amount of money the person wants and hit the pump number.

And also there should be alerts on the computer

That is set by coorporate policy. Some do prepay after five or some other arbituary time. I worked in a gas station and it was not inconvienent or time consuming to do prepays.
