Thread: No "gouging" - just shortages, unrest, and delays

    Default No "gouging" - just shortages, unrest, and delays

    So after the clean up started after Sandy, I entirely expected stories about gouging for gas and basic supplies. But, instead we see lines, fights, and gas stations running out of gas.

    Does anyone know if it was east-coast states that passed "price control laws" that prevented prices from rising, or was it just economical illiterate mob-mentality that prevented the price system from working?

    I would prefer being "gouged" for the supplies that I need to having to wait in lines and face the potential for fist fights to fill my gas tanks.

    Im guessing state passed laws..

    actually the price of gas seems to be going down lately...

    "But I thought a hurricane made it go up 50 cents overnight" - what a crock of $#@!.

    Right now gasoline should command at least a price of $20/gallon in New Jersey. Maybe $50.

    I don't remember which show it was, but I heard on Fox Business the other night that New York does have a law that makes it illegal to raise prices during a declared emergency.

    Florida has a no gouging law.
