ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Governor's office of consumer affairs continues to fine gas stations for price gouging last September after the Governor declared a state of emergency.
Two stations in Thomasville were recently fined.
Hilltop Kountry Korner on Highway 122 was fined more than $4,300, and Bain's Auto Service Center on Remington Avenue downtown was fined $3,800.
