S.C. Attorney General completes price gouging investigation

As a result of the investigation, several South Carolina gas stations agreed to pay $500 each to a Hurricane Katrina relief fund after a state investigation into price gouging allegations. The investigation found the stations charged an average of $4.59 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline without "sufficient explanation," Attorney General McMaster told AP. The investigation was pursuant to the South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act.
