Georgia gas price gougers' potential payday ruined by Gov. Perdue

Posted By on Fri, Sep 12, 2008 at 11:50 PM

Gov. Sonny Perdue wrapped his arms around each and every one of us today and activated a law that penalizes retailers who gouge consumers on the price of gas and other products.

“The threat of Hurricane Ike has disrupted the production of distribution of gasoline, which will have an effect on prices,” said Perdue. “However, we expect the prices that Georgians pay at the pump to be in line with the prices retailers are paying. We will not tolerate retailers taking advantage of Georgians during a time of emergency.”

If you suspect a retailer of price gouging, call the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs at (404) 651-8600 or (800) 869-1123.
