he worst times often bring out the best in people. As we saw with Katrina, and are now seeing with Harvey, people have banded together in the darkest of times and are finding a way to shine a light.
However, not everyone is so kind. A massively popular company has recently come under serious fire after crazy price hikes on bottled drinking water during the storm. You know, that stuff we need to survive.
But is that the whole story?
The devastation Hurricane Harvey has caused is immeasurable.
The death toll is at 31 as of today, but tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities wiped out in what’s been called a “once-in-500-years” flood.
But people have been strong in the face of danger.
Thousands of volunteers have been rescuing trapped locals, and almost everyone who owns a boat has been seen out rescuing people.
Literally thousands of people have been lining up to volunteer.
Which is an incredibly moving thing to see, and shows the power of human resilience.
Another negative impact of Hurricane Harvey was the impact it had on the price of gasoline, as well as other necessary resources.
People can live without gasoline in desperate times, but what happens when the price of food and water skyrockets during a crisis?
Unfortunately, not everybody has the people's best interests in mind.
Price gouging, as it’s called, is a terrible but common thing that takes place during tragedies like Harvey.
It can be expected from certain smaller chains and stores, but this massively popular company has come under fire after some insane price gouging.
So, who was it?
