OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state attorney general's office has found no evidence of price gouging since Monday's disaster declaration by President Bush triggered the state's anti-gouging law.

Under the law, prices can't increase more than 10 percent above the price immediately before the declaration, unless the increase can be attributed to factors other than the emergency.

A spokesman for the attorney general's office says more than 100 Oklahomans have complained about high gasoline prices in the last two weeks. But Charlie Price says no specific examples of price gouging have been uncovered.

Price says the AG's office and other agencies will continue to monitor prices.
