'Drop dead.' Because the state's Att'y General doesn't want anyone providing their fellow man with the necessities
Vendors of essential items such as food, water, gas and batteries are prohibited from price-gouging during the tempest, warned New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. And as public transportation shuts down, the law against emergency-time inflation also applies to taxi drivers, he said.
Violators “will ultimately see a reduction in their profits, [be] faced with penalties, fines and directives to set up reimbursement funds,” Schneiderman said in a statement.
So, don't think about bringing bottled water and flashlight batteries into Gotham, unless you are prepared to do the time, if you do the crime.
