Wildfires ravaging the state this summer have prompted Gov. Newsom to declare states of emergency in four Northern California counties, a move that’s again activated the state’s frequently triggered anti-price gouging law.

On July 23, Newsom declared emergencies in Plumas, Butte, Lassen and Alpine counties. The price-gouging restrictions are slated to expire Aug. 22 but can be extended. These four counties, along with the rest of California, already were under price-gouging protections triggered by heat-related states of emergency set to expire Aug. 8.
