Eleven gas stations in North Texas were accused of price gouging during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Now, the Attorney General has ordered the stations, most of which are located in Johnson and Tarrant Counties, to refund the customers who bought gasoline from them at $3.99 a gallon during the first week of September 2017.  Investigators received thousands of complaints about price gouging after gas distribution was shut down along the Gulf Coast due to Harvey’s impact.  

Attorney General Ken Paxton said, “My office is sending a powerful message that taking advantage of Texans during a declared disaster such as Hurricane Harvey is against the law and we will always do everything in our power to hold violators accountable.  This latest settlement ensures that aggrieved consumers are repaid if they were victims of price gouging at the pumps.”

While the gas stations agreed to refund customers, the settlement agreed they admit to no wrongdoing.

Lucky Mart, 3841 Cummings Drive, Alvarado, TX 76009
