Price Gouging Graphic

LA County has approved an urgency ordinance to strengthen protections for County consumers and small businesses, and to crack down on price gouging during the COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies. Effective immediately, the ordinance authorizes the filing of civil actions against price gougers and imposes a civil penalty of up to $10,000 per violation.

If you’ve seen examples of price gouging in your community or online, report it to LA County’s Department of Business and Consumer Affairs (DCBA) counselors.
