Florida Governor Charlie Crist says the state's fuel supply has not been affected by the aftermath of by Hurricane Ike, but residents have reported gas stations hiking prices in the storm's wake. So far, the Attorney General's Office has received more than 350 complaints about gasoline price gouging after Ike.

The office says it will ask four companies for documentation related to the prices the companies paid for gasoline and the price at which they sold it.

Those companies are Flying J, Dodge's Gas Stores, Valero and Pilot Travel Centers. The Attorney General's office says consumer complaints against these stations have been particularly high in several areas of the state.
