Always a couple rotten apples to try and spoil the bunch. Still amazing how everyone came together though and all the money people have donated along with their time.
Sad to see businesses do this if they know people are struggling with this hurricane issue people are not all rich. They work to earn their money.
Unusually profits drives competition and will drive prices down. As I sit here in Miami after Irma I am literally watching how the Economy has a self correct mechanism built in. The rich were the first to flee, whom still can afford these inflated prices. Small business whom earn a smaller profit margin are the first to return to business. Pulling more pressure on big business to return to oppreations driving down prices to thier natural Equilibrium.
There's a disaster, everyone goes out and buys gas at regular price, even if they might not need it. Store runs out of gas, everyone else is SOL. Store raises price, everyone only takes what they need, more fuel to go around. It's basic supply and demand. 🙄
I disagree we need regulations in order to keep merchants honest. I know we have very little honesty in the world today but someone has to watch out for the little man
You people are funny... oh think of the people who can’t afford the higher prices.... what does it matter what the price is if no one can get it?
These are who you should now #Boycott: The Bains Brothers, who own Texaco-branded gas station in Arlington, Carrollton and Richardson, were accused of charging the higher price even while displaying signs with prices in the $3-$4 range.
Additional lawsuits were filed against #Boycott Encinal Fuel Stop, a Chevron-branded gas station just outside Laredo. It allegedly charged customers $8.99 and $9.99 a gallon for regular unleaded gas on the same day.
And in Robstown near Corpus Christi, the #Boycott Best Western Plus Tropic Inn allegedly charged three times its normal room rate the weekend Hurricane Harvey hit. Best Western has since ended its relationship with the hotel’s owner, Robstown Enterprises.
