Grease Rustlers

A couple of weeks ago, a post of mine mentioned in passing that demand for biofuels seems to be driving an increase in thefts of used kitchen grease in New York. Today's Denver Post notes the same phenomenon occurring here in Colorado.

In 2000, used fryer oil was trading for 7.6 cents per pound. Recently its price was about 33 cents a pound, or almost $2.50 a gallon.
