N.Y. Gas Gouging Hotline

If you drive, you know that gas prices are maddeningly moving upward again.  This chart from AAA and Wright Express shows what gas costs us. There’s plenty of argument about whether oil speculators are partially to blame for the inflated prices.  But the bottom line is that we are paying more, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to protect consumers at ground level.  He’s set up a hotline for complaints about gas gouging and illegal practices by gas stations.  If you think a gas station is taking advantage, call the  New York State Hotline:  1-800-214-4372, or file a complaint  http://www.dos.ny.gov/consumerprotection/consumer_resources/gas_gouging.html
