Consumers complaining of inflated gas prices at Chevron in Florida -state AG

WASHINGTON, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said on Thursday her office had received 45 complaints of inflated prices at Chevron gasoline stations in the southern part of the state where consumers are bracing for Hurricane Irma, expressing concern the company may be price gouging.

“You cannot inflate prices during a time of a hurricane for essential commodities — food, water, fuel, etcetera,” she told Fox News channel. “So Chevron, if you’re watching me right now, you need to call us and tell us why your prices are inflated in South Florida, because in Tallahassee they’re not, in Tampa they’re not, in South Florida they’re high and there’s no excuse for that.” (Reporting by Tim Ahmann)
