Stopping Price Gouging... There's an App for That

TAMPA -- If you're preparing for a hurricane and find prices jumping WAY too much... or if you're on the run and hotel rooms have gone through the roof... you now have a new way to report price gouging,

State attorney general Ashley Moody rolled out a new app on a visit to Tampa. Moody says the free "No Scam" app will let residents report a location where price gouging appears to be going on, and snap a picture to send directly to the state, so investigators can move in quic.

It's illegal to raise hotel rates or jack up prices once the governor has declared a state of emergency.
