FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) -- Another day, another chance for motorists to sit for hours waiting for gas in New Jersey.

Gas lines continue to define the state's post-storm landscape.

In Hess station in Fort Lee was all that was open on Route 46 near the George Washington Bridge. Not surprisingly, the line of cars waiting to fill up stretched as far as the eye could see.

One motorist says the line went past the New Jersey Turnpike and into the town of Little Ferry.

Kwabena Sintim-Misa lives in Little Ferry and had a smile on his face as he finally filled up his car Friday morning. It came at a cost, though: Three and a half hours spent inching along.

As in other parts of the state, police were on hand to maintain order.
