Re: Obvious gouging is obvious
Our supermarkets imposed item limits weeks ago - no more than two per customer of (canned food), (pasta/noodles/rice), (tissues), (toilet paper), (handwash/sanitiser) and a bunch of other goods that are in demand. Of course you could get around it by taking multiple trips if you really wanted to, but I didn't see anyone taking advantage of that loophole. Who has the time?
All imposed unilaterally by the supermarkets, weeks before the lockdown.
If you can physically get to a supermarket, you can get any of those things now. (Well, except pasta. There's a real drought of that.)
