NEW YORK (AP) - Chicago drivers have a new way to pay for gasoline: with their fingertips.

Ten Shell gas stations in the Windy City are testing biometric systems that let consumers walk up to the pump, scan their fingertips on a device and fill up their vehicles. The systems, also installed at Shell convenience stores, are directly linked to customers' checking or credit-card accounts for payment.

There are already hundreds of these things in the Jewel grocery stores (our version of Albertson's).

Used to be a thief would take my keys or my credit cards.

Now they'll cut off my finger.

I'll pass, thank you very much...

Default No way will we agree to give our fingerprint to pump fuel.

Crooks will definitely remove your finger/hand to steal. Nothing wrong with a card attached to your key ring or one you can store in your wallet/pocket book.
