Gas Lines Tie Up Traffic Around New Rochelle, Area

Long lines are forming in and around all major roadways that have open gas stations and motorist should take note of some of the worst trouble spots.

As Hurricane Sandy's effects continue to alter daily life in Westchester County, a growing concern is now about how to fill your car up with gas, as many stations are still not operational due to power loss or low supply.

"It's crazy," said White Plains resident J.P. Endres, who had to go on a journey around the county today to try and find gas with no success.

"I first went to Lake St. in West Harrison, then up to Purchase, then to the Mobil station off the Hutchinson River Parkway which was backed up for over a mile," Endres explained. "It's really is a bad situation."

Patch has scouted out some areas around the area as places to avoid driving to due to an unusually high level of congestion of cars waiting in line for gas at gas stations in the area today.
