As a winter storm heads toward Georgia, Governor Nathan Deal today signed an executive order prohibiting price gouging for propane. The cold weather has increased the demand for the product.
“Our families, farmers and small business are worried about getting the heat they need during times of frigid weather,” Deal said. “They shouldn’t have to worry about price gouging, and we aim to prevent that.”
Deal recently ordered restrictions on propane transport be eased to help increase the state's supply of propane. If weather conditions do not improve in coming weeks, Deal will revisit state actions.
