Department of Law to report on fuel price-fixing investigation

Alaskans can get a look at two investigations into high energy prices tomorrow at a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee in Anchorage. The panel will hear details of a Department of Law investigation to find out if there has been price-fixing in the gasoline and diesel retail industry. In an interview on APRN 10 days ago, Assistant Attorney General Ed Sniffen pointed out the state has no control over the prices that retailers charge for products, however it can determine whether those prices were the result of illegal collusion among marketers.
