Most Ridiculous Item of the Day

We told you last night about some hotels, rent-a-car places and gas stations that price gouged after the terror attacks, which of course is ridiculous.

One of those hotels was reportedly a Holiday Inn in Manhattan and today the parent company, Six Continents Hotels, issued this statement:

"The hotel cited on the recent edition of The O'Reilly Factor has been contacted and an investigation is underway and any Six Continents Hotels found to be engaging in conscious price gouging will be subject to termination from the franchise system."

Well, we applaud the action of Six Continents.
