See something? Say something.

With a tropical storm potentially headed toward Florida this week, the Attorney General is bringing back the price gouging hotline, giving consumers recourse if retailers take advantage of the weather event.

“I have activated our Price Gouging Hotline to take complaints about extreme price increases on commodities needed to prepare for a potential storm strike. Please make preparation now, pay attention to weather updates and report price gouging to my office by calling 1(866) 9NO-SCAM, visiting, or downloading our app—No Scam,” said Ashley Moody Saturday.

Moody’s order follows Governor Ron DeSantis state of emergency declaration covering Alachua, Bay, Calhoun, Charlotte, Citrus, Columbia, DeSoto, Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Gulf, Hamilton, Hardee, Hernando, Hillsborough, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lee, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Madison, Manatee, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Sarasota, Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor, and Wakulla counties.

State law bans temporary hikes in the prices of equipment, food, gasoline, hotel rooms, ice, lumber and water needed in the wake of tropical storms.

    How about providing everyone Joe Biden’s private cell and email account so we can call, text or write him directly since he is the source of all the inflation with his Bidenomics BS. He is an expert at one thing: paying off his buddies in the pay for play scam for over 50 years. Green energy companies, Trade and School Unions, pharmacy manufacturers, China, Ukraine, Iran, Black Rock, Soros are just a few of his favorites.
