We can all hope that these kinds of situations are isolated.

I believe that there are laws to cover price gouging in an emergency condition. I hope that all those participating in gouging in any way are prosecuted to the fullest extent of those laws.

I understand there is a government site you can report gouging. I also have heard that some gas station in Tenn and a couple of other states are out of regular gas and they are being charged 5 dollars a gallon or more to buy more for the stations. Some stations have shut down for the time being because they are out and cannot afford to buy more fuel. Dont know the truth of that but have heard the comments on more than one board.

The formula that they use is,
GREED X GREED X GREED = Highest profits ever, for them.

I think that you will find that the price gouging is being done at the station owner level -- more than at the wholesale or mfg level. Here in Georgia, the governor put into place the emergency rules which dis-allow the price gouging. Also the President of the US suspended the EPA rules on gas on Thursday. The country is in the stage where the switch over to "winter fuel" is beginning to take place and without that suspension, there would for sure be a gas shortage. Here in Georgia, we saw some stations jump the price but, they have rolled back -- the fine for gouging is $25,000 per occurance and the "people" who own those stations can't afford that. Very easy to report here also. A station can not raise prices just because their next fuel load is gonna cost more -- they have to take delivery of that next load b4 the price can go up.

I hate gas station owners who take advantage of something like this --- non-American like.
