2 Decatur County stations and 2 Seminole County stations are on the list.

From the list on the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs website on price gouging:

"Petro South, 103 West 3rd Street, Donalsonville, Georgia - Restitution plus $5,000 fine

Mr. Pipps, 412 East Third Street, Donalsonville, Georgia Restitution plus $4,000 fine, which was assessed jointly against this station and Mr. Pipps of Bainbridge listed below

Mr. Pipps, 875 Colquitt Highway, Bainbridge, Georgia Restitution plus $4,000 fine, which was assessed jointly against this station and Mr. Pipps of Donalsonville listed above"

Bishop's Travel Center, 7827 Tallahassee Highway, Attapulgus, Georgia - Restitution plus $3,000 fine.

Restitution means that you can get a refund if you still have your receipts - LOL. Fat chance of them having to give out many refunds. Maybe a better punishment would be for folks to think about how these stations have treated us before they buy gas from them again. Think about it and then drive on to the next station! Just a thought.
well lets see

The offences occurred during the previous hurricane season, but the fines are current -- they were just announced by the state. It took the state a long time to investigate the charges against all of the stations that had complaints lodged against them.

the rich wants to keep getting richer, while the poor are barely keeping their heads above water, but a poor man knows how to survive,if he needed to. As in the songs of Hank Williams,Jr. "A country boy can survive" he should have said,"a country person can survive".

It seems that the rich want to take advantage of the unfortunate time after time. It must be nice to live in a big house and drive an outrageously expensive gas hog and then stick it to the unfortunates who are being beset by the hurricanes. I hope that all those who were involved in this travesty sleep well at night.
