Where Chad is located. For all you jerks who made comments about me being a lawyer and what I said about price gouging. Read it and weep:

http://www.ctbpls.com/http://www/PA/05R/PDF/PA05RHB02001ACT.pdf

Jeez the lawyer bashing here is disgusting. Typical to bash when you don't have a legitimate argument. Ad hominems rule here apparently.

But to the point, according to Pennsylvania law, you price gouge in Pennsylvania when:

1 consumer demand outweighs supply for a product, especially when demand heavily outweighs supply;

2. stockpiles of the product are depleted;

3. a state emergency occurs but an emergency is not required;

4. consumer products of all kinds are involved; and the

5. price charged is unreasonably excessive.

Price gouging is clearly illegal in Pennsylvania.

I am not going to run through the entire act because I simply made a conclusion that Chad's price was high enough to raise the question of price gouging. You are all free to conclude what you will. There may be no bright line in this case to determine exactly where a price gets to high as to clearly constitute price gouging. But the issue arises when there is scarcity and when the price appears to be excessive over normal pricing. So I was certainly within my right to raise the question. And I was certainly within my right to say that what Chad did was not right.

There are limits to commercial transactions. Just because two grown people agree on a price, it does not necessarily follow that the law will or should enforce the agreement. Contracts 101.
