Police attribute gas shortage, long lines to out-of-state residents

A gas shortage in town is becoming increasingly problematic in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, according to Greenwich police.

Town service stations are seeing a significant increase in consumption of fuel as well as lines for gas.

Police said residents in the tri-state area are crossing the border into Connecticut and stopping in Greenwich, the first town off of Interstate 95, to fuel up.

This trend has caused significantly increased traffic and usage at town service stations, making a difficult situation for all involved.

Police said the best remedy to the problem will be for tri-state area residents to travel slightly further up the Connecticut border into Stamford, Darien and Norwalk, where there is plenty of fuel and no lines to obtain it. It would be in the best interest of all involved if this advice is heeded, police said.
