    snjn, if you check in, I called a bunch of stations in Brooklyn. The only one that said they have gas on the belt parkway exit 11 Flatbush. I think it is a mobil station.

    Can anyone detail why there is a shortage.

    is it because some stations do not have power?

    or maybe because the trucks were not able to deliver the gas during the hurricane?

    Supposedly only Hess stations have gas now. Police are sometimes called in to “make peace” once a gas tanker arrives at a station.

    If they’d let us know a timeline (when the ports will open, etc.) maybe people wouldn’t panic and fill up regardless of current needs. The shortage is being compounded by lack of good information.

    In general Hess stations that have electricity also have gas. Seems the Hess terminals where the gas is stored are not as bad off and the tankers are able to be filled and gas delivered to stations. PSE&G claims (heard on the news about 30 mins ago) that power will be restored by tomorrow to almost all terminals where the gas is stored, so that over the weekend the available supply can be distributed. The industry claims there is no shortage of supply, just an inability to fill the trucks for delivery. Of course, if you are in an area that has no power, won’t do you any good.

    Hess Info

    ***IMPORTANT**** ***PLEASE READ***

    It’s best to visit locations that are reporting over 7,000 gallons of inventory in stock at this latest time.

    We can not predict the rate at which these change and can not guarantee inventory when you arrive.

    Sites below 5000 gallons likely have less than 2 hours of fuel remaining.

    Consider sites showing below 2000 gallons as out of stock (below min levels required to pump)

    The line was 2 long blocks and took a little over an hour. When I left it was actually shorter than when i got on.

    I spent Shabbos in Cherry Hill, NJ. This area of New Jersey was virtually unaffected by the storm. Gasoline is available and plentiful from Exit 7 of the New Jersey Turnpike and South. You can exit and fill up locally or you can go to the Service Areas on the Turnpike. The local gas stations have no lines.

    Important- There is NO gas Rationing South of Exit 8 on the Turnpike.

    Also, for those of you seeking to purchase kosher food and provisions, the Shoprite is Cherry Hill has an extensive Kosher Experience section that is fully stocked. We were able to buy everything we needed on Motzei Shabbos before returning to our area of New Jersey. The Kosher Restaurants are also open down there as well. For the location of the Shoprite and Restaurants please see this link: http://www.checkoutcherryhill.com/kosher.shtml

    Of the three locations listed, coney island ave and ave v is only for police and first responders (all others turned away), coney and T has a line 2+ blocks long, (Stillwell and 86th I never checked).

    Rio on 14th and 36th has. The line goes until 43rd. There is some roudy behavior. Unfortunately, these situations test our Middos. Please make a Kiddush Hashem.

    Eclipse would have said “rowdy”.

    Just wondering how much are they selling the free gasoline for?

    I know the pipeline by the docks was damaged, but if a large shipment came in on a barge, why are they unable to deliver more of it by trucks the way they’ve been doing??

    Received via email earlier today.

    Out of gas? Donate $100 to Kupat Ha’Ir and 40 Rabbonim will come push your car.

    Here’s an idea: Rent a car, pre-buy the full tank, siphon gas and return.

    Problem with this is that the rental places are mostly out of cars to rent. Also, they don’t necessarily have gas to sell you with the rental. But it sounds good in theory…
