'Well, There is No Gas ... '

Discussion of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is lighting up the Patch comments board.

Updated: Where's The Gas In Westchester?

"Well, there is no gas in Eastchester and Tuckahoe. I passed by all of them." -- Monica Fernandez

"Central Ave this morning - Station across from buy buy baby - out; Getty near Scarsdale post office out; BP, Sunoco by Hartsdale Ave. - out; Mobil by Hartsdale Train Station has a couple of grades this mornig at 6:40 a.m. but are probably dry now. Hess on Central had gas yesterday but line was running from Mt. Joy and not from Central - police were controlling traffic. No idea what they have today but was a mob scene yesterday." -- John Smith

"The business of taverns is to push alcohol, with or generally without regard to the consequences that occur off their premises afterwards. The business of the Chief of Police is to provide for the public safety. His decision is prudent and necessary and can always be reviewed as conditions warrant. I have no iron in the fire with your Mayor, but consider this, you could have "16 Oz" Bloomberg." -- Joseph J Gannon

... and ...

"I live on Main St across the street from the Pour House, and I will be forever grateful to the owners and the staff for giving me a place to stay warm, to eat, and to watch the news instead of sitting in my dark, cold apartment as I have been doing since Monday night. The Mayor should concentrate on restoring power to the community instead of trying to put the pillars of our community out of business. The owners of the Pour House have donated thousands to better our town, and I know they have been feeding the homeless during this disaster. They even gave me candles one night and free soup last night. They asked the Mayor if they could stay open 24 hours so that they could accommodate the people like me who are without power, heat, and food. She declined. She won't be getting my vote. Do I intend to give the Pour House and Turiello's my future business? You bet I am. I think it is disgracefull that some of you are trying to make this a money issue. Mike Deluca Main Street Nyack." -- mike deluca

Long Lines for Gas Mark the Landscape

"I wish the town or Con Ed would clarify what exactly they are doing. It does not appear that any work is being done to remove downed trees or fix the power lines. My neighborhood on Sheather Road and Harriman has several dangerous down trees that have not been touched. Everyone that I speak with has the same story. Yesterday there were three trucks form the town and eight orkers on the block not doing anything." -- jon

"Seriously. Brewster Heights got through the storm only to lose power Tuesday evening. There has been someone from NYSEG just sitting on Lincoln Road for the last two days, with no progress being made. What a joke." -- TJD

Port Chester Man Accused in Theft Attempt During Hurricane

"Nothing worse than a COMMON LOOTER during disaster times. Can you imagine what they would have done in his country "if" they caught him pulling this nonsense? I'm happy that the Patch published this picture and the story. Shameful that these "low life's" walk amongst us." -- JJ

Making Me Laugh November 04, 2012 at 09:16 PM
And Tim, your story above REALLY made me laugh. I can just imagine being at a gas station with one of these long lines of irritated drivers waiting to get to the pumps when all of a sudden some whack job hits the auto shut off button and jumps on his phone calling the police because someone is putting gas in an unapproved container. Everybody at the station must have LOVED you, right?
christa November 04, 2012 at 09:17 PM
findgas.org also lists stations with gas

I filled up the night before the storm, but have been driving around to use my saw to help people get access to their driveways and doors. I've also been doing a lot of driving to do laundry for people for free. It's easy to use a tank of gas in 5 days. By the way, if you're in White Plains or near it, I can saw up to 4" diameter trunk with my hand saw. If you have electricity, I can do about 5 inches. I also don't mind doing a load of laundry for you, but I don't sort it. It gets dumped in and I return it unfolded, but dry. 262-9208 Will do it for you if you're in White Plains, Scarsdale or Harrison.

Great genius. I bet there are no lines and plenty of gas in Dallas Texas too. Go back to sleep.
Tim November 05, 2012 at 01:19 AM
So you laugh at pretty much anything. Is your real name Joe Biden?
Teleman November 05, 2012 at 01:45 AM

Denise November 05, 2012 at 02:55 AM
@Beach Girl - of course you are right; people like Making Me Laugh troll all the Patch newsletters and say idiotic things. There are about 8-10 of these people who change their names and sadly, it seems is all they have to do in their lives on almost any subject is say the opposite or pick on someone in these comments. Just ignore him. After you Flag as inappropriate.

Little by little, guys. In times like these the "every man for himself" attitude doesn't help anyone, unless you want a migraine or anxiety attacks. It's frustrating to have no gas, I have this trapped feeling where I can't go out to complete errands without thinking of the gas I'm using. However, we have it A LOT better than those in and around the Jersey shore areas, Long Island, and Staten Island. Let's try and stay positive and help one another.
sheri November 05, 2012 at 04:22 PM
Ask your classless homies in Weschester who think the rules dont apply to them. Then they raise their kids to be selfish as well. Please stop moving up to Putnam, we really dont want the ME ME ME attitude here. Thanks.
AA November 05, 2012 at 04:45 PM
If need GAS go to Tarrytown / Sleepy Hollow area. I only waited 20 minutes last night in the Hess station. The BP in Sleepy Hollow opened this morning and the line is short. Also the Shell in Route 100, Millwood has gas this morning.
George Parr November 05, 2012 at 05:11 PM
Folks, click on the link or copy and paste this link in your browser.. A recent transaction time should mean that the gas station is actually working. http://rrtexternalweb.wrightexpress.com/neo_ww/site_locator/list.action?sortByValue=LAST_TRAN_TIME&sortDirection=DESCENDING&latitude=41.0066141&longitude=-73.7868957&mapType=Hybrid&mapZoom=12&sorting=true&address=Dobbs+Ter&city=Scarsdale&state=NY&zip=10583&fuelType=Unleaded+Regular&radius=5
AJones November 05, 2012 at 05:55 PM
Wow. Ok a lot of anger here. Well I'm assuming the "classless" ones don't read this stuff and if they do they think it doesn't pertain to them. It's a shame that humanity as a whole is going this way, and it isn't making itself known solely during this time. This was a horrible thing to happen but things of more catastrophic force can and will happen and I would hate to see how people act during that time. My best friend was on a gas line and someone cut the line where people had been waiting for a while. Her husband and an off duty police officer got out of the car to confront the person calmly. The people in the car began yelling at the officer and my friend's husband. They were in the wrong yet they were the ones screaming and causing a scene rather than say it was a mistake and go to the end of the line. The police had to be called ultimately. It's ridiculous honestly. No accountability. However this isn't happening because there is a high demand on gas or because Sandy happened. This went on way before this. How many of us are driving day in and day out, someone does something that is wrong, and when you look at them or say something they are the ones to give you the finger or curse you out when they clearly did something wrong or were not paying attention. People do not want to be called out for anything they do. This isn't the way I was brought up.

You are a mean foolish person. Get a life. You are a lier and a fool. Something truly awful will happen to you because of your attempts to hurt others.
Lori November 05, 2012 at 06:10 PM
How about some arsenic. The only thing that will help that fool.
Krista Madsen (Editor) November 05, 2012 at 06:14 PM
I hear the lines are still not bad here in Sleepy Hollow today.
Michael Woyton (Editor) November 05, 2012 at 06:14 PM
The Shell station near Torino's on Pelham Road in New Rochelle has gas. $30 max/cash only. Line is not very long. I didn't have to wait for more than 25 minutes. Lines forms on Pelham on the eastbound lane.
Lori November 05, 2012 at 06:14 PM
Just ignore "make me laugh" -- he is the joke. A foolish proponent of the mediocre with c- writing skill. Lets all agree not read his posts regardless of our political beliefs. Lets call it its a bipartisan stand against stupid, how about that?
Kaye November 05, 2012 at 06:20 PM
I had trouble with this station in the past...charging my credit card twice for the gas. As far as Costco...Keep local businesses in business; bad enough we have Walmart.
Michael Woyton (Editor) November 05, 2012 at 06:25 PM
Best to ignore the trolls, people.
Denise November 05, 2012 at 06:41 PM
Michael Woyton: Right. Suggestion for Patch - make a troll list:) I can only think of 3 at the moment to ignore and they may all be the same person lol I don't know. They thrive off getting people upset, best not to feed their frenzy, Making Me Laugh Nummy eatdogfood or ieatdogfood something like that
Crymsin November 05, 2012 at 10:10 PM
Just went to Sleepy Hollow. BP has virtually no line. Gulf only has Super, which is what I needed anyway, but there was no wait at all. In Valhalla, the Mobil by Cabin Restaurant has a small wait. American was closed. Not sure the name of the one at the corner past the college, on the left if you were going to the BRP but that is open and there were only a handful of cars online there as well. Slowly but surely everyone is opening again. No worries....and just in time for the Nor'easter. Yay!
Marie Zanicchi November 05, 2012 at 11:27 PM
What station on 303
Robert Paulson November 06, 2012 at 06:28 PM
Lines are long everywhere. I mixed some lighter fluid with water and filled my car up. Beats waiting in line.
Max November 07, 2012 at 12:57 PM
Any gas station with gas in Rivertowns area?
Max November 07, 2012 at 02:49 PM
Just got a full tank gas in GULF -- 611 Warburtom Ave, Hasting. Waited on line for 10 minutes : )
Dina Sciortino November 07, 2012 at 03:34 PM
Thanks for letting us know Max! Here's the updated list for those who didn't see it. http://rivertowns.patch.com/articles/where-to-fill-up-in-the-rivertowns
Max November 07, 2012 at 07:54 PM
