NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two New York lawmakers are pushing for protection for customers from efforts to price gouge at area gas stations.

State Senator Eric Adams and Assemblyman David Weprin sponsored two bills which would require all gas stations in the state to post a sign near each gas pump listing contact information for the NYS Consumer Protection Board.

The Board is authorized to investigate gouging complaints and take action against violators.

To report if you think you have been a victim of gas price gouging, call the New York State Consumer Protection Board at 1 (800) 697-1220.
