Email or Text Pictures of Price Gouging

LITTLE ROCK- Hurricane Ike is approaching the Texas coastline today, and threatening both oil refinery capacity and gasoline supply lines into Arkansas. As a result both rumors and accurate accounts of gas price increases are flooding the Attorney General's office.

Today, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel asks Arkansans to send his office documentation of price gouging if they see it in their hometown. The office has received numerous calls and emails in the past 24 hours from citizens who are concerned about a sudden hike in the price of gas at the pump.

McDaniel encourages citizens to use their cell phone cameras and document evidence of what they believe to be price gouging and email it to, text a picture to 501-539-0969, or they can call 800-482-8982.
