Atty. Gen. DeWine probing water price gouging
Thursday, August 14, 2014 8:14 PM

Information submitted

 

TOLEDO — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Wednesday that his office has sent letters to 58 businesses to seek substantiation of bottled water prices before, during, and after the Toledo water ban. The office has received 56 related consumer complaints.

“Although Ohio does not currently have a statute that defines what price gouging is, we are working with consumers and businesses to gather all the facts,” DeWine said. “It is possible that the facts will show that no violations occurred, but we want to make sure that the businesses substantiate any price increases and ensure they conformed with Ohio law. Those that cannot substantiate their actions may face legal repercussions.”
