Many New Jersey residents are spending a lot of time looking for gasoline.
Plenty of gas stations are closed because Hurricane Sandy has left them without power, and they’re unable to pump fuel.
There are long lines at the stations that are open.
Freehold resident Mike Alexander waited for half an hour to get to the pumps at one station in Jackson Township.
“Why did I do it? I need gas for my generator. I need gas for my car. I work. Obviously I’m on the road all the time for my job. The last time I seen something this was when I was a kid when they had the gas shortage.”
Michael DiCairano of Marlboro says he didn’t mind the wait for a fill up.
“Actually I waited four hours yesterday for gasoline and was only able to pick up a gas can’s worth. My truck is low. I got a few other vehicles that I do commute with that are also going to need gas, but I’m happy to get it in this one vehicle and some in my gas can for my generator.”
Some of the stations ran out of gas because of the big demand.
