Price gouging a crime in Utah
The Utah Attorney General's Office wants to be notified if anyone in the state is engaging in price gouging.
Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says he's seen prices on some items go from three-dollars to 300-dollars.
State law requires that prices for goods and services cannot be raised more than ten-percent during an emergency.
Anyone found violating that law can be fined up to one-thousand-dollars per transaction, up to a maximum fine of ten-thousand-dollars a day.
Reyes says the penalties for price gouging apply both to individuals and companies.
