News-Review staffer Gianna Volpe took to the sky Friday in an airplane — but with a camera in hand — and took these aerial photos of gas lines stretching in both directions from Hess station on Route 58.

Lines at the Hess, near the Tanger Outlets, stretched past the Long Island Expressway to the west when the photos were taken about noon.

Readers reported some 200 cars were waiting for gas at the station, with Riverhead Town police officers and New York State troopers standing by.
