A survey conducted a month after a gasoline shortage produced long lines at Phoenix-area stations finds that voters want the state to have an anti-gouging law.
They also give Governor Napolitano a favorable rating for dealing with the problem.
The survey released yesterday found that 79 percent of voters surveyed say they would favor Arizona having a law to financially penalize businesses that unfairly raise prices for essential services during times of emergency or crisis.
Meanwhile, 57 percent of voters surveyed approved of Napolitano's handling of the shortage, while 29 percent disapproved and 14 percent had no opinion.
The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday by Arizona State University
's public television station and its school of journalism and mass communications.
