Governor Bobby Jindal's state of emergency declaration during Tropical Storm Ida also puts Louisiana's price gouging law into effect.

State law says once a state of emergency has been declared, retailers may not grossly increase the price of gasoline without good reason.

If you see a place of business you suspect is price gouging, you can call the Attorney General's consumer protection hotline at 1-800-351-4889 or log onto www.agbuddycaldwell.com.
