Now that Hurricane Sandy has passed and clean-up has begun, a crippling gasoline shortage has gripped parts of the tri-state area.

Gas stations in New York City, Long Island and along the Jersey Shore are turning away customers as their pumps have run dry.  At stations that still have fuel, there are long lines of both cars and pedestrians with portable gas cans are waiting to be filled.

Social media has become an outlet to share information on what stations have fuel. This thread appeared on the Facebook page of New York City radio station WLTW:
