Price gouging

Well, this is familiar, no?

We get a natural disaster and suddenly people start jacking up the prices of things. Gas here is climbing all over $3 per gallon, and the news today had a report about gas stations in Atlanta which were hitting $5.50 per gallon.

Still not quite as high as people in the UK pay, but it's getting close.

Anyone want to take bets on whether it gets back down to last week's prices any time soon?

Didn't think so.

Isn't price gouging illegal?
