It’s been over a week since Hurricane Sandy, but it’s still hard to get gas in many parts of New York and New Jersey.
To help out, there is GasBuddy.com, a self-described “fuel shortage tracker” a crowd-sourced tool for sharing tips on where gas is available in the New York Metropolitan area.
Drivers can share tips on gas availability and search an interactive Google map to find out which stations have gas, which do not, and which are unknown. A driver can search by zip code and see a list of gas stations with available gas and a time stamp for when this information was shared. For example, when we checked, the Hess station at 210 Greenpoint Ave in Brooklyn, has fuel “as of 29 minutes ago.”
