Got gas at Hess station on fourth ave yesterday, and no line whatsoever ! Are things finally starting to get back to normal? I hope so. But I am still praying for all those families that were displaced by this storm. God bless us all!

Getty station at Yellowstone & Woodhaven was closed last night (11/12), 2 Gas stations at Woodhaven and Myrtle were also closed Mobil station on Woodhaven (near Yellowstone) appeared to be open, with no lines. Wonder if they're still charging for a car wash to get gas. Someone should (by now) have reported them and they should be indicted.

Hess Station on Woodhaven (just north of the Belt Parkway was closed last night) but the Sunoco station nearby was open.

Didn't know that they were doing that - if you experienced that firsthand, you should have no concerns about reporting them yourself!

Linda; I didn't personally experience it, rather I had read about it, and I wanted to see it it had been stopped. I intensely dislike that 'take advantage of the needy' behavior.
