Even in the dead of night, long gas lines in NY, NJ


Damage from Hurricane Sandy has disrupted fuel deliveries and forced many gas stations in New Jersey and New York to close. The result: ridiculously long lines at those gas stations that remain open.

Insane line of traffic waiting for gas on 44th & 10th. Backed up to 37th. #sandy instagr.am/p/RgkY6KK4s0/

It was just a matter of time before someone tried to cut a line:

New York City authorities say a motorist was arrested after he tried to cut in line at a gas station in Queens early Thursday and pointed a pistol at another motorist who complained.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says 35-year-old Sean Bailey, of Queens, was arrested on charges of menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. It wasn’t clear whether he had a lawyer.
