They're at it again

Geez, the greed of some folks never ceases to amaze me. Especially in Georgia. In the immediate aftermath of hurricane Katrina several gas stations in Georgia were gouging consumers at the pump. Some were increasing prices by more than a dollar per gallon in hours. I remember racing to the gas station in an attempt to beat the price increases after our secretary sent out an email waring that the price per gallon was increasing by the hour. Eventually the state of Georgia fined the stations that were guilty and they also were ordered to refund consumers that had purchased fuel from those stations. You would have thought they learned from that experience. I guess not.
