Gas Prices: $3 Per Gallon in MO and OK, $8 in GA
Gas prices are approaching $3 per gallon in Missouri and Oklahoma.
Meanwhile, in Georgia, "The state has received 1,300 complaints of gas gouging and has subpoenaed sales records from 130 gas stations to determine if they illegally jacked up prices in the wake of Hurricane Ike. There was one report that a station was charging $8.82 a gallon, but that report hasn’t been verified." (Another link here.)
To which columnist Neal Boortz replies "Don’t investigate them! Reward them! Price gouging is exactly what we need! It should be encouraged, not investigated."
