MGN Online

New York's attorney general has issued a consumer alert warning of potential price gouging and delivery delays for propane customers.

A.G. Eric Schneiderman issued the alert Saturday encouraging anyone who experiences excessive delays or possible price gouging to contact his office. The alert came after the A.G.'s office received complaints from consumers.

"No New Yorkers should have to freeze in this weather, and my office is looking into cases of unacceptable delivery delays and potential price gouging," said Attorney General Schneiderman. "Any New Yorker being overcharged or left in the cold without propane should contact my office immediately."
