"The keys are in it . . . ."

This was Kai Ryssdal's final note on Marketplace this evening:
Another conspiracy theory around the high price of oil and gas.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau says it's noticed something fishy. The bureau says there's a striking correlation between the number of SUVs and trucks reported stolen and the rise in gas prices.

Six of the top ten vehicles on the list are gas guzzlers. Despite the fancy name, we're obliged to mention the bureau is funded by insurance companies.
More on the report here.

on a side note- the captchas on these comments are killing me. I don't know if I have ever been able to get one on the first try.
