Karen Bennett says she just could not believe someone would siphon gas from her car-she said--"People are having a tough time making ends meet and they just don't have the extra money to replace gas in their cars or oil for their homes--" At least 6 residents of Ashley Park near Wilkes-Barre say their gas and/or home heating oil was stolen in recent days-  Marilyn Vivian said, "These people who are doing this have no heart---how can they sleep at night?" Ashley Police Chief John Bell says he will increase patrols in the area and urged people to call 9-1-1 if they see anything suspicious----
