►More than 1,000 New Jersey gas stations are unable to sell fuel due to power outages and delivery problems, according to the head of one of the state's gas station associations.
►New Jersey Gasoline-Convenience-Automotive Association, which represents 1,500 stations, told us by phone that 75 percent of his members have shut down fueling.
►difficulties along every point - difficulty getting supply from the pipeline, to distribution centers, to the trucks, to the gas stations, and then the final hurdle, getting it into car.
►Many stations don't have power to pump gas. Those with power are pumping fuel until they run out.
►there are more cars on the road since many bus and train lines remain suspended.
►There's nobody rationing. When a retailer has gas, he's pumping until he has no more.
►Gas lines over a mile long, with more than 150 cars, are now a common sight across the state. Waits are up to three hours.
