NY-NJ port opens for gas delivery amid shortages
Sen. Charles Schumer says the U.S. Coast Guard is reopening New York and New Jersey ports to restore gasoline and fuel to the areas hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy. WAMC's Dave Lucas reports.
The limited opening of the Port of New York and New Jersey to allow for fuel deliveries is aimed at stemming the widespread shortages and massive lines at gas stations in the two states.
Schumer tells The Associated Press he spoke with the Coast Guard Wednesday, and the Coast Guard began the reopening process shortly after noon Thursday.
The Coast Guard had shut down the port as a precaution against the superstorm.
