Gas Updates: Still limited stations open around town

11/03/2012 11:02 AM |

As supplies slowly begin to make their way onto Long Island, gas stations in the Riverhead area are still in short supply as of Saturday morning.

A few confirmed gas stations that are open include a Valero station in Jamesport and a Citgo next to Riverhead Dodge on Main Street. The Mobil in Riverhead at Route 58 and Mill Road has line going down Pulaski Street stretching back toward Lowe’s, a reader reported.

Citgo in Calverton on Route 25 is also open as is a Hess Station on Edwards Avenue in Calverton. Gas stations in Wading River and Flanders appear to be closed. Four stations in Riverside are still closed as of early afternoon.

The New York Times reported that the Defense Department is sending 24 millions gallons to the region and that things should stabilize soon. The biggest problem is panic buying from the public.

Assemblyman Dan Losquadro provided some updates via Facebook this morning. He said demand outstripped the initial supply of gas that came in yesterday, but that should gradually ease over the next few days. The Northville Industries gasoline terminal in Holtsville is operational. The U.S. Military is also using equipment to bring in 12 million gallons of unleaded and 10 million gallons of diesel that will be spread across the entire region affected by the storm, Mr. Losquadro said.

Supplies should return to normal within the next few days, he said. In the meantime, he encouraged people to limit their driving as much as possible to conserve fuel.

  • 75 of Americans believe that you ought to have to clearly show voter ID to vote, and I am considered one of them. It is basic and totally free to acquire ID for those who do not have it; there’s substantial voter fraud, and I’ve seen it first-hand in Chicago. Franken won by 312 votes; he would have lost with no the1150 felons voting, and there might be no Obamacare. Amongst the causes I left the Democratic party was mainly because in their position on voter fraud, voter ID. It really is only unsupportable.
