U.S. Military to Deliver Gas

The U.S. Defense Department announced Friday that it will send 24 million gallons of fuel on tankers to storm-ravaged areas of New York and New Jersey. While many officials have insisted there is "no reason to panic" over a fuel shortage, less than 40 percent of the areas gas stations are operating at full capacity and frustration over the gas shortage has caused long lines at pumps in the affected areas, with lines stretching for miles in some areas. On Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie  ordered a gas-rationing system until further notice. In New Jersey, Christie told residents to go south to look for gas, saying that while only 25 percent of stations north of Interstate 195 are operating, 90 percent of those south of the highway are in service.
