Dustin McDaniel Calls for Subpoena on Gas Prices

APRIL 27, 2006 - Posted at 7:53 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Dustin McDaniel, a candidate for attorney general, says that, if he is elected, he'll use the office's subpoena powers to investigate the pricing practices of major oil companies.  The Democrat from Jonesboro, who currently holds a seat in the state House, said that if elected the state's top lawyer he would take a more active role in investigating oil companies.

Yesterday in Jonesboro and Little Rock, McDaniel called for expanded use of biodiesel fuel and said he would strictly enforce the state's existing gas-gouging law.  McDaniel said most of the state's gasoline comes through a pipeline in North Little Rock.

He said most people think their local gas station is just raising the prices to make a quick buck.  But he said most of the price increases originate at the source.
