Texas sues three companies accused of price gouging during Harvey

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing three Texas companies he believes were involved in price gouging in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

One of them, Bains Brothers, owns Texaco stations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including one in Arlington that received numerous complaints.

A second is a Robstown-area hotel near Corpus Christi; the third is a Laredo-area Chevron station.

“It’s unconscionable that any business would take advantage of Texans at their most vulnerable — those who are displaced from their homes, have limited resources, and are in desperate need of fuel, shelter and the basic necessities of life,” Paxton said Tuesday in a written statement.

The lawsuits come as more than 3,320 complaints of price gouging across Texas, including 502 in Tarrant County, have been reported, according to records from the attorney general’s office.
