There have been many reports about price gouging in South east Texas and Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, including gas, bottled water, food, etc. In our area of PA, the gasoline has risen $0.30 to $2.75 and the attendant at my station this morning told me they are expecting it to go up at least another $0.30 before the end of the weekend. There are reports from all over the US about rising gas prices because many of the refineries had to shut down. Why isn't this considered price gouging? Aren't the oil companies doing the same thing...raising prices because of a drop in production?
