The Grease Racket

2008_05_simpsonsgrease.jpgWith gas prices skyrocketing, the Mission has become ground zero for the battle over restaurants' used grease: "'It's like a war zone going on right now over grease,' said David Levenson, who owns a grease hauling business in San Francisco's Mission District ... [Levenson] has built up contracts to collect the liquid leftovers from 400 restaurants in the last two years. Last week when his pump truck arrived at Thee Parkside, a dive bar known for its chili-cheese fries, his driver found someone had already helped himself to their barrel of yellow oil."
