Scramble For Gas Amid Shortage After Sandy [VIDEO]

 

Gas stations weren’t spared from Sandy’s wrath. The few with power have mile-long lines, but many don’t even have any more gas to offer.

FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports from Clifton, New Jersey:

Audio clip:

 

Here at this Sunoco gas station on a busy stretch of Rt. 3 in Clifton, they’re out of gas but when people pull in here other drivers think there’s gas and they begin lining up, driving over barriers and hoping over curbs in a desperate attempt to fill up. It’s an accident waiting to happen.

(Driver) “I am very afraid. I can only go so far because I have three cars with gas.”

Not enough for this woman to wait out the mile long lines we’ve seen at other gas stations that remain open. Also in short supply around here: ice, water and electricity.
