It used to be that restaurants had to pay to have their waste oil taken away. Then, with the boom in homemade biodiesel
, people were willing to schlepp it away for free, which made everyone happy. I ', pretty sure there are some areas today where biodiesel groups are paying to take the oil away. But, with the high gas prices
and the easy-to-understand value of waste oil, said oil is disappearing from restaurants in Wichita, Kansas, reports
KWCH-TV. As Healy Biodiesel owner Ben Healy tells the station, "Oil is really the life blood of our company and if we don't have oil, there's nothing for us to do here. Every gallon of oil that is stolen from us is a gallon of oil we can't sell."
