More New Yorkers got power Saturday for the first time since Superstorm Sandy struck the region, but frustrations mounted over gasoline shortages as refueling sites turned into traffic jams of horn-honking confusion.
"It's chaos, pandemonium out here," said Chris Damon, whose family was displaced from his home in the Queens neighborhood of Far Rockaway and are staying with relatives in Brooklyn. He circled the block for 3½ hours at the Brooklyn Armory, where the National Guard was directing traffic.
"It's ridiculous. No one knows what's going on," he said.

I knew this free gas idea wasn’t going to go well.
Everything comes with a price.
The gas is for government use only. They can’t charge their Government Motors Volts, so they need that evil fossil fuel more than the “little people” do.
Well, there's some good news.
That’s because the gas is for the elites, not the peons.

In his car? Probably used more gas doing that then he would get from them.
Interesting that no msm tv has a 5:30 pm broadcast tonite. Really trying to keep from having to report bad news that would reflect on bammy.
The gas may have been free, dude -- but you wasted a lot of it driving around the block, and you'll never get that 3.5 hours of your life back.
We should all learn a lesson from this. Despite having a several day warning, people did nothing to prepare for this storm. This is going to be bad. It isn’t thousands of people destroying the Superdome, but we haven’t seen the worst of it yet.
Why are they getting free gas anyway? The people around here sure were not offered any after the tornadoes. That is just asking for Trouble. Don’t they know any better? Of course not—it is the gov’t, after all
Thats because the gas is for the elites, not the peons.
“most of Atlantic City’s casinos reopened...”
Private enterprise, self intrest, being prepared with a plan of action for an emergency or disaster. NYC would be better off if it was managed by MGM or Harrah’s.
No doubt, the Union Thugs are at the head of the line.
Gyyyaaahhhh!!!! Close that thing!
