"Snopes" ( is one of the best 'definitive' sites for checking out hoaxes, scams, and other internet 'garbage' that clogs our inboxes. This 'gas out' thing is so old that it has dust and mold on it. Internet users are wise to check out Snopes for almost anything except messsges from friends and family before passing it on - and even those should be checked out too.
