Because of the importance of gas prices to Oregonians in all walks of life, this office invites information that might suggest the presence of an unlawful conspiracy in restraint of the sale of gasoline.
On the state level, Attorney General Myers invites your assistance in collecting data that might help distinguish between the lawful operation of the marketplace for gasoline and unlawful conspiracy in restraint of trade. Although a rapid and dramatic run-up in the price of gas charged by all of the retailers in a community would not in itself establish that any unlawful conduct had occurred, it could serve as a flag for further inquiry.
If you observe a rapid and seemingly uniform increase in the price of gas in your community, and you have some reason to believe that it results from something other than competition between independent merchants, please use the Gas Price Reporter link. (their emphasis)
The Gas Price Conspiracy Reporter
Please briefly explain why you believe the price you observed was the result of an unlawful conspiracy to fix gas prices.
But wait, before you report the possible "gas price conspiracy" make sure that your tin-foil hat is securely on your head. Government websites read your thoughts so they know how to better control you for their experiments.
And what about other things that us citizens use on a daily basis? Like roads for example. Is he going to establish a website where we can report conspiracies to get us out of our cars?
