GAS STATIONS-LAWSUITS
(2007-08-14)
(wgvu) - A MICHIGAN GAS COMPANY HAS AGREED TO PAY
$4,000 TO SETTLE ALLEGATIONS IT ILLEGALLY RAISED PRICES IN
WISCONSIN AFTER HURRICANE KATRINA HIT.
WISCONSIN PROSECUTORS SAID THAT KRIST OIL OF IRON RIVER
(MICHIGAN) RAISED POSTED GAS PRICES MORE THAN ONCE A DAY IN SIX
CITIES.
THE STATE'S LAW ALLOWS GAS WHOLESALERS AND RETAILERS TO CHANGE
PRICES ONLY ONCE IN 24 HOURS.
A MARINETTE COUNTY JUDGE SIGNED OFF ON THE SETTLEMENT LAST
WEDNESDAY.
THE SETTLEMENT IS THE LAST OF SEVEN AGREEMENTS THAT WISCONSIN
HAS REACHED WITH GAS SUPPLIERS.
