Customers can report suspected price gouging at the pump
ALBANY, N.Y. - Governor
Andrew Cuomo has announced a new website for consumers to use if they become
suspicious of price gouging at gas stations.
Cuomo says he has directed
the Department of State and the Department of Agriculture and Markets to ensure
consumers are protected against potential unfair practices at gasoline pumps as
fuel costs rise across the nation.
Mac Brownson, the president of the New York State
Association of Service Stations, was critical of its need.
"The spot market price in NYC dictates what my cost
is going to be. I have to go up because my cost went up. If we're all going up
equally than how could it be gouging?"
Furthermore, Brownson says there's no set definition for
what gouging is.
"They've left it so vague that we can't interpret it
and they won't tell us. They purposely leave it vague so they can interpret it
when the want to."
