Gas Crisis Abates

Lines for gas have mostly disapeared in New York City and Long Island thanks to 1970s-style rationing as well as emergency deliveries. The relief comes just before the major Thanksgiving travel week. Damage from Hurricane Sandy left normal gas distribution systems in ruins and ports dysfunctional but officials have put together a distribution system that brings gas in from out of state and that has been supplemented by supplies from Federal and State agencies that have supplied gas stations with $2.3 million gallons of gas to help them stay open.
