Can’t be surprised that the AP gets this wrong:
A North Myrtle Beach legislator has introduced a bill that would cap gas prices in South Carolina at whatever the average wholesale price is on June 1.
Democratic state Sen. Dick Elliott of North Myrtle Beach said the bill he introduced Wednesday is needed because gas prices are slowing the state’s economic recovery.
Elliott’s bill would put any excess charges by retailers above the wholesale gas price into a trust fund. The Legislature would decide how to use the money to benefit citizens.
If you want to guarantee gas lines and shortages, you are the right track, Dick.
