Gas Gouging!

Great video.  There's nothing complicated here.  We prevent markets from working, by restricting price.  And then we blame markets for failing, because at that price there's a shortage.  Amazing.

They've imposed purchase limits in my parents' area in New York. My brother got them a generator, but now they have to decide between gas for the generator vs. the car.

But having a purchase limit also gives you an incentive to buy up to the limit whether or not you need it *now*, just in case you don't have it later, which makes the shortage even worse.
