Scams and Price Gouging

Attorney General Ken Paxton warns Texans that state law prohibits price gouging in the wake of a declared disaster. The AG’s office advises: If you feel that you are being unfairly charged for goods or services such as drinking water, food, batteries, generators gasoline or towing, raise the issue of price gouging with the provider. Speak to the provider respectfully but be frank.
