Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has asked consumers and businesses to report instances of price gouging. Under rules governing a disaster emergency, companies and vendors are prohibited from charging a price for consumer goods that exceeds 20% of the average price to which those goods / services were sold 7 days preceding the date of emergency declaration.
As of March 30, the Attorney General’s office has received over 3,000 reports of price gouging across the state.
If you see price gouging occurring in your community you can submit a complaint to the Attorney General’s office here. You can also email their office at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the name of the product, price of the product, name of the store and the location of the store.
