Long Lines for Gas in New Hyde Park After Sandy

Traffic congested around New Hyde Park Road and Jericho Turnpike.

Image of the 1970’s gas crisis came to mind Wednesday afternoon as New Hyde Park residents lined up in their cars for the chance at filling up their tanks after the impact of superstorm Sandy.

Traffic was congested on Jericho Turnpike headed east as cars, vans and SUVs pulled into the Shell station at the corner of Jericho Turnpike and New Hyde Park Road side-by-side, while a line stretched down New Hyde Park road almost to the Long Island Rail Road tracks.

The Shell gas station appeared to be the only one with power after the storm as the station on the north side of Jericho and the BP station further west were both without customers and appeared to be shut down.

This morning, the station was charging $3.89 per gallon of regular-grad fuel in cash-only transactions. The price for credit-card purchases was $4.01 per gallon.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
