Post Sandy Gas Shortage Continues
A sign indicates that no gas is available at a gas station in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Friday temporarily waived a maritime rule to allow foreign oil tankers coming from the Gulf of Mexico to enter Northeastern ports to help ease a fuel shortage in the areas hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy. Area residents have been struggling to find gas stations with power. At stations with power, residents have faced miles-long lines and dwindling supplies.
