This may not be the best option unless you already know of a station that has gas and no lines. Isn't jersey still in a juel pinch too? So that might just leave you with less fuel.

If you were going to venture out for gas, might be better off heading to nassau/suffolk. Driving through suffolk yesterday i witnessed a few stations servicing even number cars on an odd day bc there was literally no one else at the station. Apparently knowing your plate number is to much work for us in suffolk so no one bothered getting gas.

My sister lives in the Nassau county and she said he has to drive 30 minutes to get gas somewhere else.....

I was in Plainview/Old Bethpage yesterday and there was no wait really. Saw just 3 cars waiting at a Hess station on Old Country Road.

I saw a few stations with gas and power and relatively abort lines by little neck yesterday. Odd even plate Rationing seems to be working. Or people have gotten fuel after e initial panic... Who knows.
