You might be right but in Canada I am not aware of any mandatory pay in advance stations so perhaps attendants keep track of who is at what pump a bit more.

A very quick google search leads me to believe that "gas and dash" fatalities (attendants being run down chasing a gas thief) are predominantly a Canadian phenomenon. I can't imagine why any attendant would put their life on the line for a tank of gas. Or why someone would run down an attendant and then go on the lam of 3 years for $112 worth of gas.
