MIAMI, Fla. -- Airbnb is accused of price gouging people who are trying to book places to stay for Super Bowl LIV.

"Airbnb watch", a hotel-funded group calling for stricter regulations of home rent-outs says airbnb could be gouging Super Bowl travelers.

The group claims airbnb is raising prices to thousands of dollars a night for the weekend.

Airbnb denies the claims, saying it's making stays in Miami more possible because of sellouts.
