How Long Will Gas Lines Last?

Northporters continue to seek out gas for their cars and generators.

People are continuing to line up on foot and by vehicle to buy gas for their generators or their cars. Numerous lines formed again Wednesday morning around Northport, including several at stations that showed no sign of opening.

It's the new routine, as we saw first-hand Monday at the eight-pump Hess station at Fort Salonga Road in Northport.  

Customers on foot in the Town of Huntington looked especially miserable in the rain and winds Wednesday.

To find gas, use Hess' gas tracker. Another web resource is Gas Buddy.

How long do you think this will last? Will we get back to normal by this weekend? Next week?

@Chris I agree with odd/even days. It sends the message that this is a long-term event. But we're going on two weeks now. Time to be practical.

Where we're headed? Nassau Police arrest 3 attempting to siphon gasoline from cars: http://patch.com/A-zwgb

You are right... Two weeks is ridiculous. I'm blaming LIPA by virtue of the fact that we have eggshells for an electrical infrastructure. Beyond that the leaders/industry TOTALLY missed to boat on what took place. I just cannot imagine inventory catching up with this demand, real or imagined without a forced stoppage/rationing.

Anyone know the details or can verify the rumored shooting last week at local gas pumps?

Gas station attendants should institute a simple rule: fill up your car and limit gas can fill-ups to 2 cans. My friend who lives near Oyster Bay witnessed a car cutting in a gas line behind her car. She watched through her rearview mirror as 2 drivers behind the cut-in got out of their cars and verbally threatened the 2 young women in the cut-in (they initially were laughing like it was a big joke). But the threats increased (one guy threatened to break the women's car windows) and the offenders left. A bit scary, isn't it?
