National News

ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — New York Attorney General Letitia James issued a consumer alert on Thursday surrounding potential price gouging of gas.

She said if her office notices excessive pricing, it will take legal action immediately.  New York law prohibits businesses that sell fuel and other vital goods from excessively increasing their prices during an abnormal market disruption.  

Some of the hardest hit states have seen gas prices around $7 a gallon.
