BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Have you seen evidence in Western New York of price gouging during the coronavirus pandemic?

Report your concerns to the 7 Eyewitness News I-Team.

Nationally, some have tried to cash in on the COVID-19 pandemic by selling hand sanitizer at $60 a bottle and toilet paper at $10 per roll, according to an article by the Associated Press, which surveyed all 50 state attorneys general.

Price gouging generally involves an increase of more than 10 percent.

If you have experienced price gouging, take a picture or video and send it to 7 Eyewitness News I-Team Chief Investigator Charlie Specht at Charlie.Specht@wkbw.com or by calling (716) 840-7870. Or message him on Twitter or Facebook.
