Price gouging laws may suck economically, but price gouging sucks morally, and anybody who does it should be hanged by the neck until dead.

So you kind of believe that the folks who kept enough of an inventory to cover emergencies, because they felt that they could serve the community and themselves by being able to cover an emergency -- can't recover the investment and take the risk to carry the excess inventory?

Make no mistake there will be gougers who just get lucky, but ruling out the above really makes no sense at all

On the other hand, I was in an area that had gouging from this storm, and I will not be frequenting their businesses.
