Long Lines Form at Teaneck Gas Stations

Motorists flock to local service stations ahead of winter storm

Some Teaneck gas stations were already jammed Friday morning with motorists filling up before a major winter storm was expected to slam the region.  

The Exxon station at Queen Anne Road and West Englewood Avenue only had premium gas available, a station attendant said. Another delivery was possible later in the day. 

A long line of cars started forming around 6 a.m., the worker said. 

On Teaneck Road, U.S. Gas near Amsterdam Avenue was packed with cars around 9 a.m. Another service station, near Bedford Avenue, also had a line of cars. 

The worst of the storm is expected to hit Friday evening, according to a blizzard warning issued by the National Weather Service. Up to 14 inches of snow is possible.

People are preparing now? If I recall this storm warning has been in the media since early this week. Talk about being ill prepared.

The gas lines started last night right after the town sent around a message about the storm. The gas stations on Cedar lane were packed for hours and so were the food stores. Not that the intention was there, but the call definitely instilled a sense of panic amongst the residents of town. The call was necessary but the reaction seems to be a bit overboard. We will see of course as the storm passes through - be safe everyone.

people are also panicking due to the effect Sandy had on them. I was in Florida when Hurricane Andrew hit and it has taken me years to no panic when a storm such as Sandy comes our way. That does not mean I don't prepare but I don't "panic".
