Ohio Attorney General To Monitor Bottled Water Prices In Toledo

DeWine spokesman Dan Tierney says the office received several dozen complaints over social media this weekend of bottled water cases being sold at more than three times the typical price.
Ohio does not have a statute that deals directly with price gouging, but state law bans unconscionable sales practices.
