There you go. You know in your gut that price gouging is wrong.

No I know that the places that were gouging were doing it out of sheer luck.

The pizzaria, which was the only place that had a generator, and was charging a few dollars extra and posted why? I will go back there. But I did not list the exceptions

The Ace hardware a locally owned chain affiliate charging a fortune for gas cans? Well, they lost a customer, it is a value judgement.

I think they have the right to do as they please, and it is not wrong on a lawful basis. I also do not hang out with bigots, though I think it is perfectly legal to be one.

I think it is more stupid than wrong, when I can avoid it, I do not do business with the stupid.
