Oregon Attorney General warns of hotel price gouging ahead of solar eclipse

With just over a month until a solar eclipse plunges parts of Oregon into darkness and fills the state with hundreds of thousands of visitors, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is urging eclipse chasers to confirm their hotel reservations to avoid unexpected cancellations and price gouging.

The Oregon Department of Justice reported an increase in consumer complaints from people who’ve had hotel reservations canceled or their room rates doubled or tripled.
