MA AG Urges People to Report Suspected Gasoline Price Gouging
Boston, MA – The Massachusetts Attorney General is urging people to contact her office if they suspect gasoline price gouging. WAMC's Paul Tuthill reports...
The appeal for people to contact the Massachusetts Attorney General's consumer division if they suspect price gouging, followed a warning from Attorney General Martha Coakley last week to Massachusetts petroleum retailers. She said attorneys general across the county would be teaming with the U.S. Justice Department to make sure people are not victims of price gouging.
Gasoline prices in Massachusetts shot up another 16 cents in just the last week. A price survey by Triple A of Southern New England found unleaded regular selling for an average price of $3.82 per gallon... That's more than a dollar higher than at this time a year ago.
