Uneven What could cause uneven fuel levels in a Cessna 172?

I went for a 1.5 hour flight in a 1977 Cessna 172N, with several take-offstakeoffs and landings. I was alone. When I left, I had 18 gallons in each tank. When I arrived back, I had 15 gallons in the left tank, and 10 in the right tank.

Why was there such a disparity? Is this at all dangerous? Why did the right tank have less?
