Missouri's Attorney General Jay Nixon announced in a press conference Wednesday that he would demand penalties from price-gouging gas stations.

Nixon says he has sent demand letters to 28 stations that dramatically raised their prices on or after September eleventh.

Nixon says he has received calls and e-mail complaints about fifty Missouri stations.

OutCue: "...to make a buck."
Contents: Nixon criticized those stations saying the rescue workers and citizens of New York handled the situations calmly, but some Missouri gas stations tried to make money.

Nixon told the stations they must pay one-thousand-dollars in fines or face the possibility of a lawsuit.
