Area gas stations subpoenaed

Attorney General Roy Cooper sent subpoenas to seven gasoline retailers on Monday, some of whom were reportedly charging as much as $5.49 a gallon for regular gas on Friday. Cooper said retailers will have 10 days to explain why their prices were so high. The Quik Chek stations in Troy, Oakboro and Locust were included in the first round of subpoenas.
