Some gas stations across Westchester accused of price gouging

Gas stations across Westchester are being accused of gas gouging.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, gas prices hit an all time high across Westchester. Now, Westchester County Executive Andy Spano is calling it gas gouging. Spano ordered the Department of Consumer Affairs to conduct a survey of all gas stations across the county. So far, they say they have not found any gas stations that are gouging.

The owner of a Gulf Station in White Plains says the high prices are difficult for him as well, and says he doesn?t know from one minute to the next the kind of increase he will get. A consumer affairs inspector says if oil shortages continue to occur, gas prices in Westchester will continue to rise.
