Price Gouging Is All Around Us



Good day from all of us at Discount Motor City, used car sales, Surrey, BC. First, we all hope that everyone is safe and comfortable while facing what we are all facing – the coronavirus. It has always been a thorn in our side, seeing some of the things that go on, and recently I wrote a blog, “Did I Really Sign This?” about what I saw as price gouging in a used car sales contract. I know it is always buyer beware, but to me, there is a limit to everything.


Toilet Paper


And now, we are facing a pandemic with the coronavirus. I would call it a panic. The other day, I saw a lady with 6 packages of Costco 36-roll toilet paper. What is someone going to do with 216 rolls of toilet paper? With one roll every two days, that is 1.2 year’s supply.


Finally, Action


There have been stories of sellers price gouging with sales over the internet. Some of the prices people have been paying for masks and sanitizers, to me, is absurd. But now, at least in the USA, Amazon and others are taking action and the sellers are getting the pinch. Click Here to read a New York Times Story about Amazon and others finally taking action.
