furnfins Still pretty crazy in Brooklyn, my husband waited 1 1/2 hours Saturday, kept shutting the car off so it woudn't run out of gas,omg, I get a call his car stalled. I had to go boost him. I saw him pushing the car when I got there...hope things get better here.

acitydweller 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.

furnfins 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.

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.....

ryu1 Anyone have any info on those gas stations on the nj side of holland tunnel? If there is no lines, i would rather get gas there.

florafan I too am down to less than a 1/4 tank and have not been driving since before Sandy. A couple of co-workers told me they went to CT to fill up - no lines.

Chrisinator Most of Bergen County gasoline stations are open if you have enough to drive all the way here... Good luck to all of you! I've had to wait a combination of 6 hours waiting on the gas lines with friends.

I always thought that odd number on odd number days and even number on even number days. Another suggestion I have been told you could do is to drive out to NJ to refill. You have to pay the tolls and depending how far you need to drive to NJ. At least, you won't have to wait on line.

Depending which neighborhoods you are in, things may get worst. I have an even number plate and so I won't be able to get gas the next time until the coming Tuesday.

acitydweller Gasbuddy.com/sandy will direct you to the local nyc map but be warnned thr map may be useless on your mobile, at least it is on my blackberry.

Lots of misinformation on gas buddy as well so be aware. Two places I visited were not even open today. Upon walking to the station, they all say they don't know when the next delivery is. So ask when yeserdays delivery was... These guys tend to be on a delivery schedule. I didn't wait to stick around and went to get breakfast. I'm down to under a quarter so I may be bus and training it to the meet tomorrow.
