mysterious gas leak

Funny story. Tell me if this has happened to anyone else. I have a blue candy 2012 focus hatch titanium. I love my ride. I am driving home through an area of construction. As I slow down at a red light, I look in my rear view as always to make sure the person behind me is not gonna rear end me. I see a man and a woman in a white pickup frantically waving at me to get my attention. I stop at the light and lower my window to hear what the driver is yelling toward me. "Hey lady, you are spilling gas out the rear." In my head I'm thinking, no way, my gas gauge is not plummeting downward and I have no indications on my dash, but I pull over into a gas station at that light to check it out. I found nothing, so I drove home. The next day as I am driving home again through the construction area, I just happen to be following a blue candy focus SE at a speed of about 35 to 40 MPH. I look at the right rear end of the focus and I see the imaginary gas leak, I was informed that I myself had. Turns out the reflection off the orange and white barriers made it look like gas spillage as we passed each one. Long story longer, I do not have an issue at all, and I solved the mystery.

LOL ok...

You know you'll see puddles of water under a car after the AC has been running, right? Don't worry, it's really water.
Be eclectic.
