Supplies Shortage Leading To Long Gas Lines In NJ

Posted: Updated:

Patrons are lining up at the pumps to fill up their tanks in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

But it's not that easy to find a station with gas.

In fact, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority is asking motorists to use caution when driving on the turnpike and on the Garden State Parkway. That's because the lines are so long that they're stretching from the service area lots onto the roadways.

Many places are out of fuel, and people are driving near and far to fill up.

Some customers reported driving 45 minutes from their houses to find fuel, not only for their cars but also for their generators.

Meanwhile, Gov. Chris Christie has signed a waiver to boost storm-depleted supplies by allowing merchants to temporarily buy fuel from out of state. This is in effect until Nov. 7.
