What is an appropriate penalty for gas gouging?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 3, 2005
“They should have to sell gas for as much under the real price as they tried to sell it over the real price for the same amount of time.”
“I’m honestly not sure they should be penalized, even though I don’t agree with what they are doing. The people are just greedy, but I don’t think they should be penalized for trying to make money. It’s the American way.”
“Run ‘em out of town. They obviously have no sense of community, so they shouldn’t be a part of one.”
“The store owner should at least have to pay everyone back the difference in price.”
