Hurricane Sandy Gas Crises - Upstate NY running out of gas

New York City is out of gas. New Jersey is out of gas. Now, as people are flooding out of the cities into the surrounding towns to find gas, it has created a flood of panic buying. All of the gas stations for 80 miles outside of New York City are running out of gas fast. Many gas stations are already out of gas. Most will be out before the night ends. Due to power outages in New York, the gas pumps cannot provide fuel to the 20 million residents of NYC. Families are trying to get gas for their generators. People are trying to get to work and back. Trucks have been sent out to get gas for the city. But now the small towns and villages outside of the city are running out of gas as well. This has caused a wave of panic buying. Everyone is flocking to gas stations to top off today before gas stations run out of gas. I talked to the owner of a clean up company today about the situation in the city. His company cleans up water and fire damaged homes and debris. But he cannot get the gas to keep his trucks on the road. This will further impair the clean up process of New York. This video is about the chaos and lines at the gas stations 80 miles north of New York City. This video includes interviews with customers, gas station attendants and volunteers.
