How much for bread and matches?

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Disasters can bring out the best in people -- or the worst.

New York's state attorney general is now investigating more than 400 reports of price gouging related to Superstorm Sandy.

Most reports are about the high price of gas.

But some consumers say they were charged ten bucks for a box of matches or $7 for a loaf of bread.

Officials sued some gas stations following Tropical Storm Irene last summer.
