PRICE GOUGING FORM  - Step 1 of 3 Consumer Information

On October 9th, 2018, at 8:45 am, Governor Deal issued an Executive Order and declared a State of Emergency.  In the Executive Order, the Governor recognized that the uninterrupted supply of petroleum products, emergency or disaster related materials, supplies, goods and services (to include any agricultural or other food products) is an essential need of the public, and any perceived or actual shortage threatens public welfare. Accordingly, he enacted price gouging controls for 92 Georgia counties.

The impacted counties are: Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Baker, Baldwin, Ben Hill, Berrien, Bibb, Bleckley, Brantley, Brooks, Bryan, Bulloch, Burke, Calhoun, Camden, Candler, Charlton, Chatham, Chattahoochee, Clay, Clinch, Coffee, Colquitt, Cook, Crawford, Crisp, Decatur, Dodge, Dooly, Dougherty, Early, Echols, Effingham, Emanuel, Evans, Glascock, Glynn, Grady, Hancock, Houston, Irwin, Jeff Davis, Jefferson, Jenkins, Johnson, Jones, Lanier, Laurens, Lee, Liberty, Long, Lowndes, Macon, Marion, McIntosh, Miller, Mitchell, Montgomery, Muscogee, Peach, Pierce, Pulaski, Quitman, Randolph, Richmond, Schley, Screven, Seminole, Stewart, Sumter, Talbot, Tattnall, Taylor, Telfair, Terrell, Thomas, Tift, Toombs, Treutlen, Turner, Twiggs, Upson, Ware, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Webster, Wheeler, Wilcox, Wilkinson, and Worth.

At 10:00 am on October 10th, 2018, Governor Deal expanded the scope of the original Executive Order to include 16 additional counties: Butts, Clarke, Columbia, Elbert, Greene, Jasper, Lamar, Lincoln, McDuffie, Monroe, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Taliaferro, and Wilkes.

The State of Emergency, including the enacted price control restrictions, as amended on October 12th, remains in force for the 108 Georgia counties until 11:59 pm on November 6th

Businesses may not sell, or offer to sell at retail, any goods or services identified by the Governor ... at a price higher than the price at which the good or services were sold or offered for sale before the declaration of the State of Emergency. 

Price increases on goods or services are permitted only if they accurately reflect an increase in the cost of new stock or the cost to transport it, plus the retailer's average markup percentage applied during the ten days immediately prior to the declaration of a state of emergency.
