Tell Amazon: No price gouging during a pandemic
Dear Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos,
As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, critical supplies, including face masks, surgical gloves and hand sanitizer, remain essential to American families. However, price gouging on these products persists on Amazon's marketplace, creating unnecessary, unfair barriers to accessing these products. An analysis from the U.S. PIRG Education Fund comparing pre-pandemic prices to those in December 2020 and found price increases of more than 20 percent across 409 listings.
Amazon must do everything possible to ensure that all essential products on its site are fairly priced. We ask you to strictly enforce your Marketplace Fair Pricing Policy and remove all cases of excessively priced essentials.
