Forty-eight gas stations across Texas have been ordered to pay $166,592 to refund customers “who were charged exorbitant or excessive prices for gasoline” during the Hurricane Harvey disaster in 2017.

A majority of those gas stations are located in the North Texas area, said a statement released Thursday morning from the office of Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Gas stations listed in the settlement included: 13 in Dallas, 12 in Fort Worth, four in Garland, two in Richardson, two in Haltom City, and stations in North Richland Hills, Addison, Denton, Lancaster, Grand Prairie and Irving.
