While Sandy may be moving out of the region, the lost power, flooding, and other issues have not. As transportation comes back online and as employers open their doors, motorists will be looking for gasoline and other fuels.

We called Love's Travel Centers today for an update on their operations. Love's operates 290 stations throughout 39 states nationwide, with travel centers in various states throughout the Northeast. Love's currently was experiencing limited outages at four stations in this corridor, and was working on bringing in generators to the locations that had lost power.

We were informed that supply is flowing adequately, and that Love's had proactively topped off all their underground tanks before the storm...

Ducati: that's a problem, isn't it? Too many times ppl take one step but not the other(s) necessary.

I'd glad someone was thinking ahead -- filling the tanks was very wise. In many ways they took a risk because the price of wholesale is dropping, so in essence they paid more for fuel than they normally would have.

Too bad all gas stations don't have back-up power. Especially when we are so fuel dependent and our grid is so fragile.

My thoughts are with those who lost loved ones or all their possessions.

hope all GB folks hit by Sandy are safe. Shouldn't really be on the road right now unless you absolutely have to. Let clean up crews do their job first.

People in the Northeast need all the help they can get at this point. Glad that fuel is available. It's one less thing they need to contend with.

Amazing that national outlets like Loves and Flying J are not raising prices by avery much while the artical on price gouging seem to be indepdent gas stations and hardware stores that are pricing items that affect their friends and neighbors.
I have tried to buy from local owners but this is making me rethink my options.
