I was thinking the same thing, especially if they're local as well. But everyone's out to make a buck I guess....

I proposed buying 5 gallons of gas and the seller of gas to put one gallon in his tank. He agreed to that. I need a little gas to get over to NJ (pay tolls $20) to buy some gas over there.
Would you do it? bad idea?
Do what I did. Cross the GWB onto RT 46... pull a U-turn. BP has gas. $3.95 a gallon, cash or credit. Good to go. NO LINE.

I was just in new Rochelle and got gas no problem. Maybe 4 people in front of me. I also filled up two 5 gallon jugs and delivered it to my father in law in bayside. I went by my house in Suffolk the other day. Parked next door and waited on the line for cans for about 30 minutes. My wife and I got 17 gallons in 4 cans. The car line was as far as the eye could see. I suggest getting two 5 Gallon jugs and waiting online until this **** blows over. You can't get premium anywhere around here 87 only.

This is absolutely true.

The urban world is always on the verge of riots, chaos, and destruction when faced with such situations. If utilities cease to exist or we run out of supplies, there will be grave consequences.

Thanks but I think im going out to fort lee NJ. As soon as I get this craigslist gas I will take a drive over there. Hopefully I can filler up. Never had to worry about getting fuel for my car and not having gas is a major incovenience.

As much as I hate paying $70 for 5 gallons, if it wasn't for these guys, I would be stuck since I do not have enough gas to wait on those 4 hours lines.

Called Acura roadside assistance a few times and they said they are not able to find anyone that can deliver gas to me. They said everyone is out..

If you can try to make it to NJ or the border of CT. Go in the middle of the night when there is no traffic.

I am from Boston but last weekend I made a trip to jersey to see the gf. I was worried about getting gas there, and originally i was right. 2a-3a driving thru upper Nj and lower NY lines were half a mile long. I was like "aww shhh". But after the fourth or so rest stop on the turnpike (coming from north) at like 330 am there was no line, filled up 93octane, for cheaper than I paid in mass. Then I got off at the rt206 (I think) to ac and there was a sunoco there, no line, for 19cents cheaper than I just paid, I assume there was gas there because there was someone at a pump. Hope this helps

What are the prices up north like? Gas is about $3.25 for regular here in VA.

Yepper.

The same people who make fun of me for hoarding supplies are the same people who will come crying to my house.

For $2000 in supplies and $2000 in cash, you can prepare your family for just about anything within reason.

You can be better prepared than 90% for $500 in supplies (+ gun and ammo.)

People wear $5000 watches but dont have a gallon of water at home. I just don't get it.

Maybe its a Florida hurricane thing for me, I dunno.

I will stay paranoid...and alive.

I honestly have no idea what I would do without a gun.

I literally turn around and go back home if I forget one.

It may seem silly from the outside, but after carrying for 15 years, it becomes like forgetting your glasses.

Are you not even allowed to keep one in your home in NYC?

In Florida, any non-felon can keep one in their glovebox.
