sugar picBy Chrisbert Garcia: Reports have surfaced in Punta Gorda (PG) town of price gouging being done at a certain Chinese owned store, which is currently selling sugar for $1.00 per pound, although a government press release issued late last year, stated that effective on January 1st of this year, sugar should be sold countrywide at a price per pound of no more than $0.75.

An upset resident who wished to remain unnamed, told our Toledo reporter that he went to purchase sugar at the particular store and was surprised when the cashier charged him $1.00 per pound for his sugar. The complainant even produced a receipt to prove that his claims were true and promised to report it to authorities.

It is unknown if other stores are participating in the illegal act which is punishable by law as stated in that mentioned press release, but that store that was reported is expected to drop prices immediately to the permitted price per pound.
