Everyone panicked, I went out of town labor day weekend, everywhere else gas was 2.29 and nobody was panicking! Thanks to our local media for scarring people into a panic!
In a free country you would be able to charge what you want and people would be able to pay what they are willing to pay for the product without government intervention..... gouging laws are bovine excrement
No reason for gas to go up at all. Refineries back on line, big ??? should be why the gas not going down as fast as it went up?? "I voted "
Price hikes are a crime during a natural disaster such as the hurricanes. People have lost everything and it's so shameful that people like this take advantage of people. I hope they're prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Time to set an example of these POS! #TexasStrong
I think most people just trying to fill up before gas went up not because of shortage. I think gas stations claiming their tank emptied was fake. Same thing in the 70's. Oil companies cause it and media bought it."I voted "
In such a situation when retailers are required to keep their prices low all the fools in the front of the line take everything then "it" is empty & the people at the back get nothing; how is that beneficial for anyone? If prices are raised appropriately then people will only take only what they need and not hoard everything..... leaving the same situation for the people at the back of the line
Ridiculous, these communistic price fixing laws are stupid and only serve to hurt the consumers. No increase in price when demand is high, no incentives for additional production and delivery of those goods to the market which then lead to shortages.
For those crying foul about this, here is a book that explains basic economic principals in a very easy to understand format.https://www.amazon.com/Basic-Economics-Common-Sense-Economy/dp/0465002609
The Governor said they better not do it. I'm glad to see these people are going to pay for it. That was so wrong to raise prices like that.
I am amazed! This is the first time I've ever heard of justice being served on a gouger! WELL DONE!If more gougers were sued,it would make other would-be gougers not be mean to the poor people caught in events not of their making!!
Good, I was wondering why, stores raising the price of gas, and now building materials isn't profiteering, but a couple of guys driving around with sheets of plywood in a pickup @ double price is.
