AG To Gas Stations: Don’t Even Think About Price Gouging

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has issued a warning to state gas stations not to gouge or take advantage of customers following refinery closures in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. This outage could potentially affect other states, including Michigan, and Schuette has made it clear to gas station owners that taking advantage of this type of disaster would not be tolerated. The nation’s largest refinery in Texas is currently shut down due to Harvey. GasBuddy.com puts the statewide average at $2.61 a gallon, up a dime from last week and the ninth-highest average in the country.
