Two more gasoline stations in North Carolina are being questioned about their prices after the flow of fuel was interrupted by a pipeline leak in Alabama.

 

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Two more gasoline stations in North Carolina are being questioned about their prices after the flow of fuel was interrupted by a pipeline leak in Alabama.

The office of Attorney General Roy Cooper said Wednesday that he is seeking information from gas stations in Raleigh and Indian Trail.

Complaints filed with the Consumer Protection Division said the stations were charging $4.99 or more per gallon.

The Consumer Protection Division is investigating potential gas price gouging based on approximately 1,300 complaints from consumers.

Subpoenas were issued Monday and Tuesday to gas stations and wholesalers in Guilford, Forsyth, Johnston, and Rockingham counties.

The leaking pipeline has been bypassed and the flow of gasoline resumed Wednesday night.

Some stations in North Carolina ran out of gasoline because of the leak.
