MI AG Continues Propane Investigation In U.P.
MI AG Bill Schuette
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a petition for additional civil subpoenas in the investigation into price gouging and other questionable business practices related to high propane costs this winter.
The petition, filed recently in Marquette County Circuit Court, ordered AmeriGas, the nation’s largest residential supplier of propane, to provide documents and testimony in the investigation into possible price gouging, failure to honor existing set-price contracts, and AmeriGas quoting some customers one price on the phone and then those customers received delivery at a higher price.
Since early December, the A-G’s office has received 44 individual complaints against AmeriGas and there have been more than 400 complaints against propane retailers from this past winter.
If consumers have additional evidence suggesting that a retailer engaged in illegal behavior, they are encouraged to contact the Attorney General’s office.
