As many Florida families prepare for summer driving trips, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is urging motorists to be careful when filling up their tanks.
In the last few weeks alone, more than 250 skimmers have been discovered at gas stations throughout the state.
Drivers are urged to take a close look at pumps to see if any are open, unlocked, or if the security tape has been cut.
Payments can also be made more securely with the clerks inside.
