PORT JEFFERSON STATION, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — After superstorm Sandy, there was fuel in gas station pumps, but without electricity, no one could fill up their tanks.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday that won’t happen again.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, Cuomo announced gas stations on or near main highways or expressways will be required to have transfer switches so that generator power can be used. Nearly 400 gas stations on Long Island will be required by law to install the switches. Business owners can pay for the installation with grant money, Cuomo said.
