Light My Fire

I was not aware of this.  An insurance fraud ring in California offered arson services to torch gas guzzling SUVs while the vehicle owners claimed thieves had stolen and burned their cars.  I suspect other factors beyond the price of gas.  What I found most amazing about this story is that it says the number of vehicle arsons, most of them apparently a misguided form of self-help, dropped from more than 5,000 in 1987 to only about 200 in 2004 due to increased enforcement.
