8 charged with price Gouging
I was thinking in light of the post on sending in the Guard to quell looting that there should also have been a send in some price checkers to prevent highway robbery also known as gasoline sales! NJ charged 8 with price gouging including a hotel. NY is also conducting an investigation!
"One gas station, a Lukoil station in Paterson, is accused of charging $5.50 per gallon for regular gasoline -- an increase of $2.05 per gallon, or 59%, above its pre-storm prices. The other stations are accused of price hikes of between 17% and 34%."
NY Attorney General received over 500 complaints!
