So far more than 2,500 people have called the State Attorney General's office to report claims of price gouging. Roy Cooper met with the media today in Raleigh and laid out what is being done to catch businesses that may be charging customers too much. Those subpoenaed have 10 days to respond. If a business is found guilty of gouging, they could be fined up to $500,000 per occurrence. If you feel like a gas station or wholesaler is price gouging, call the Attorney General's office at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM (1-877-566-7226).
