Video footage captured a reckless driver reversing into a gas pump in South Portland, Maine. After starting a fire, he quickly fled the scene.

It happened on Saturday, September 19 at ScrubaDub Car Wash.

The business posted the footage on Facebook asking the community to help identify the driver.

The surveillance footage shows a dark SUV reversing out of a parking space and directly into a pump, which sparks a fire. Instead of pulling over and getting help, the driver speeds off.

What happened

Shares of electric-truck start-up Nikola (NASDAQ: NKLA) were down again on Monday, on continued selling pressure in the wake of a hard-hitting report from a short-seller last week. But a statement from Nikola challenging the report — and a new note from a Wall Street analyst defending the company — may have been mitigating that selling pressure early on Monday.

So what

Nikola’s stock has been under pressure since last Thursday, when short-seller Hindenburg Research released a scathing report that accused Nikola of being “an intricate fraud built on dozens of lies.” From Wednesday’s close through Friday’s, the stock lost about 24% of its value.

Auto investors expected the selling pressure to continue on Monday — and in fact, the stock was down more than 10% in premarket trading early on. But the

Shares of a broad array of oil stocks are falling sharply today, following the latest weekly petroleum data survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. According to the latest update, U.S. refinery production slipped almost 1 million barrels per day, while gasoline consumption, as measured by the amount refiners supplied to the market, remain stuck in a narrow band that’s down about 9 million barrels per day from last year. 

As a result of the continued lag in a further recovery of transportation fuel demand, producer stocks in particular are taking it on the chin. At this writing, shares of Matador Resources (NYSE: MTDR)Antero Resources (NYSE: AR)Range Resources (NYSE: RRC), and Southwestern Energy (NYSE: SWN) are down between 5.3% and 8% (even though they are more focused on natural gas than oil).

On the other side of the coin, refining and oil logistics stocks including
