Bronx drivers say gas crisis may be easing

THE BRONX - As gasoline shipments continue to make their way to The Bronx, drivers say the "gas-tas-trophe" is easing up just a little.

One resident tells News 12 The Bronx that Monday morning's wait was about 16 times shorter than the wait over the weekend.

Still, after a 4,000-gallon delivery on Sunday night, a BP station along Bruckner Blvd. has run dry. Other gas stations in the area have depleted resources as well.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo allowed 8 million gallons of gas to pass through New York Harbor over the weekend, but distribution was delayed because of flooding.

Cuomo said another 28 million gallons will make its way over to city gas stations over the week.
