Senator calls on Attorney General to investigate gas companies


MAHOMET – A state lawmaker is demanding an investigation into what he calls price gauging by gas station companies before the July 4th holiday.

State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) is asking Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to investigate.

“The price increase is ridiculous. I know of no gas line explosion, oil refinery accident, or international conflict that happened," he said.

Senator Rose is encouraging his constituents to reach out to the Attorney General’s office to file a consumer complaint if they suspect price gauging.They can also call the consumer fraud hotline numbers at 800-386-5438 (Chicago) or 800-243-0618 (Springfield).
