Marietta, GA--

Police in Marietta say they've arrested three men for gas siphoning.

They say the men used garden hoses to steal gasoline from vehicles in apartment complexes in that Atlanta suburb.

One victim said he'd go to bed with a full tank of gas, and in the morning, his gas tank would be empty.

Gasoline prices are now at record highs in the U.S., according to the American Automobile Association.

Police said with gas prices on the rise they expect to see more of this type of crime.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    You MUST be kidding. I have to assume that you're either making more than 15 dollars an hour, or are still living at home with your parents. People who earn between minimum wage and 15 dollars an hour are seriously feeling the effects of the gas prices going up. And you say gas prices aren't that high? If someone uses 3 gallons of gas getting to and from work each day, thats 12 dollars. For the minimum wage employee who works 8 hours a day, thats more than 25% of their income after taxes.
