Price Controls are a Tried and Failed Policy
The House of Representatives is considering the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act (H.R. 7688) to protect consumers from price-gouging of consumer fuels. However, the current proposed bill is not well defined and offers no meaningful guidance and is filled with unclear verbiage.
According to the American Petroleum Institute (API), anti-price gouging legislation is worse than the problem it seeks to solve. Such proposals aim only to artificially influence price while ignoring the fundamentals of supply and demand that drive where product is needed.
