The Alabama Attorney General's Office
has received more than 2,500 complaints since Friday concerning
rising gasoline prices. Spokesman, Chris Bence, says the office's
consumer affairs line has received the calls from people who believe
stations have unfairly raised the price. The prices started going up
as much as 30 to 40 cents a gallon Friday at some stations as
Hurricane Ike approached the Texas coast. Gov. Bob
Riley issued a state of emergency Friday evening. That triggered a
state law that prohibits businesses from raising prices more than 25
percent when an emergency has been declared. Bence says each
complaint received will be investigated. Prices at the gasoline
pumps jumped overnight across the state. According to AAA, the
average price for regular unleaded is slightly above $4 per gallon
today. The national average for regular is $3.84 a gallon.
Midgrade fuel was up 9 cents to $4.21. The average price for premium
is $4.33 a gallon. That's about 10 cents higher from Sunday. Diesel
prices climbed a penny to $4.18 a gallon.
