Halacha - Sakana
Submitted by Nachum  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Technically speaking anything that is commonly done and accepted as normal behavior is not forbidden. The Torah explains an employer's obligation to an employee as based on that the employee risks his life at his job such as one who climbs a tree to pick the fruit. However, you certainly should factor into your decision the increase in risk to your life and health against the benefit of saving on your gas bills. If you attach proper value to the importance of your own life, you may decide that is worth paying extra to protect.
