Gas stations scramble in Sandy's aftermath

NEW YORK (AP) â¿¿ There's plenty of gasoline in the Northeast â¿¿ just not at gas stations.

In parts of New York and New Jersey, drivers lined up Thursday for hours at gas stations that were struggling to stay supplied. The power outages and flooding caused by Superstorm Sandy have forced many gas stations to close and disrupted the flow of fuel from refineries to those stations that are open.

At the same time, millions of gallons of gasoline are sitting at the ready in storage tanks, pipelines and tankers that can't unload their cargoes.

"It's like a stopped up drain," said Tom Kloza, Chief Oil Analyst at the Oil Price Information Service.

Exasperation builds on Day 3 in storm-stricken NYC

NEW YORK (AP) â¿¿ Frustration â¿¿ and in some cases fear â¿¿ mounted in New York City on Thursday, three days after Superstorm Sandy. Traffic backed up for miles at bridges, large crowds waited impatiently for buses into Manhattan, and tempers flared in gas lines.

Subway service was restored to most of the city, but not the most stricken parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, where the tunnels were flooded. Bridges into the city were open, but police enforced a carpooling rule and peered into windows to make sure each car had at least three people. The rule was meant to ease congestion but appeared to worsen it.

More than 1,000 people packed the sidewalk outside an arena in Brooklyn, waiting for buses to Manhattan. Nearby, hundreds of people massed on a sidewalk.

Flying gets easier but travel woes still persist

NEW YORK (AP) â¿¿ Planes were getting up to speed faster than trains and automobiles in the storm-stricken Northeast.

The region's major airports were all open once New York's LaGuardia resumed flights Thursday morning. While there were additional canceled flights and the tri-state air space was still relatively empty, flying was closer to normalcy than moving by rail, subway or car.
