Governor Outraged at Price Gouging Reports

September 16th, 2008 by flanews

The Florida Attorney General and the Agriculture Commissioner are giving oil companies seven days to comply with their subpoenas. The AGs office is requesting information from four gas companies. The Commissioner of Agriculture subpoenaed 16 companies. More than 2,000 complaints of gas price gouging have been reported to the states two hotlines. Governor Charlie Crist is outraged at the stories hes hearing about gas price gouging.

We are in a situation where peoples lives are at risk in Texas because of Hurricane Ike and some people are so damn greedy that they want to take financial advantage of that. Its outrageous, especially after you see whats going on on Wall Street. Enough is enough and were not going to take it anymore, Crist said.

If its determined that some stations raised prices illegally, they would face a 25,000 dollar fine for every day they ripped off their customers.
