 "Price Gouging" complaint or information?

The Indiana General Assembly passed  Indiana‚Äôs Fuel Price Gouging Law  on July 1, 2002.  This law prohibits price gouging for fuel products when the Governor declares an emergency under either general disaster/emergency powers or energy emergency. The law allows the Attorney General to investigate and seek restitution, injunctions and civil penalties in court of up to $1,000 per transaction.

The Indiana Attorney General's office and federal agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy monitor gasoline prices.  Information can be found at:   Gasoline Pricing Information or AGO, Consumer Protection Division at 866-241-9753.   Complaint form.  Complaints are only excepted when the Governor declares a state of emergency. But the Attorney General's office will always take your information and comments.
