Shortage of Fuel at Gas Stations

Sandy storm is one of the deadliest storms that has ever happened in the history of the United States. People had to face many situations when there was no power for more than 48 hrs in most states. Public transport was suspended and people had to stand in long queue at gas stations for fuel. The sand storm has caused billions of dollars damage.

Many gas stations in New York City and New Jersey remained closed due to low fuel supply. The gasoline stations were left with no power, empty tanks and long lines of vehicles with people blaring horns and shouting to get fuel for their vehicles. Many drivers and car owners were left standing in long queues for filling fuel in their respective vehicles.

Some places had power, but no gas and at some places there was gas and no power. People with no gas had to look for alternative options and same with people who were left without power. The government of US is planning to buy fuel from states to restore the situation on shortage of gas. This has brought sigh of relief to the people.

Because of shortage of fuel, public transport had to run limited services for the public. Due to which these public transport services was overloaded with people. In the coming days, prices of the fuel may rise, burdening the people. It may take some time for the government and people to get over this dreadful situation, so that they get back to normal life.
