According to the Associated Press, police in the San Francisco Bay area say a woman set fires in the restrooms of two gas stations and a coffee house and told them she did it to protest high gas prices.

No structural damage was reported at the Arco station, the Chevron station and the Starbucks in Danville where fires were set using fireplace logs and a lighter.

Police say they later found 64-year-old Diane Craig at a nearby fast food restaurant with eight fireplace logs with her. Authorities say she told officers that she was behind the fires and that she woke up that morning wanting to do something about high gas prices.

Craig was arrested on suspicion of premeditated arson and burglary.

Police say they don''t know why the Starbucks was targeted.
