Make certain to clearly identify your answer to the question and be complete in your answer. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina crippled many oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and temporarily put out of commission several oil refineries along the coast. The devastation caused a shortage of gasoline. Responding to reduced supply and constant or increased demand, the price of gasoline shot up, doubling or, in some instances, tripling in price. Economists urge that retail price increases help ensure that those drivers who need and want gasoline the most will be able to get it during times of shortage. Price increases reduce unimportant driving and promote conservation. However, many people see soaring prices during time of emergency as unethical. Almost half the states have passed laws prohibiting too rapid rises of retail prices during times of declared emergency. Throughout the South, there were numerous fines imposed for illegal “price gouging” after Katrina. And when following the hurricane the oil companies reported record profits, there was an outpouring of public criticism. Question 1.
