Gas Price Gouging Investigation Continues

September 17th, 2008 by flanews

Reports of gas price gouging continue to come in from across the state. More than 2-thousand complaints have been processed by workers at the states two hotlines. Sixteen gas companies were subpoenaed by the state for info about why their prices shot up over the weekend. Attorney General Bill McCollum doesnt think all of the companies are guilty of gas price gouging.

There are quiet a few people who are getting subpoenas that will turn out to have invoices like McKenzie did here locally that will show the fact they had prices theyre simply passing on and thats not price gouging, but I also suspect were going to find that some people when out and raised the prices too soon or raised them higher than they should have, said McCollum

The companies have seven days to comply with the subpoenas.
