From Today’s NBC5 Pump Patrol Reports

7:00 PM – It was reported that the Shell at Holiday Lane/Mid-Cities Blvd. in North Richland Hills was selling at $5.22! (Definitely gouging!!!)

“Murphy USA on 66 in Rowlett is $2.94 . . .”

“Blum, Texas off hwy 174, Shamrock, $2.89 for unleaded. . . “

“EXXON-MOBIL on Collins & I-20 was over $3.00 dollars yesterday afternoon . . .”

“DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT THE TEXAS ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE IF YOU SEE A STATION THAT IS TRYING TO GOUGE PEOPLE. (an e-mailed pic of the price would really help.) I used this strategy after 9-11 on a local station and they stopped selling gas for about 5 months afterward.”

The average reported for Metroplex appears to be holding from yesterday around $2.89.9

“Gas prices were up everywhere in Texas Wednesday. Fort Worth was hit the hardest, with a gallon of regular unleaded selling for as much as $3.19. Dallas hit a close second at $3.09 a gallon; El Paso and Houston were each selling for $2.99. San Antonio logged in at $2.90 a gallon and Austin was in first place at $2.81. . . . if anyone can prove a retailer is raising prices artificially -- because others are charging more -- they are urged to call the Attorney General's office at 800-252-8011 to file complaint.”

“WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush warned against price-gouging of gasoline on Thursday in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and said looters should be treated with zero tolerance. . .”
