It doesn't surprise me that people will take advantage of a situation like this. Happens everytime there is a threat of a hurricane here in Florida. However, I don't think this will be tolerated. I know the Mayor in NY already said they will prosecuted & fined right on the spot if anyone even attempts to price gauge, he has ruled it illegal. I hope the rest of the country follows. It is fair. There are no shortages in the other states, so there is no reason to be jumping up the prices.
