The post Sandy gas shortage is wreaking havoc in the Hamptons, on the North Fork and all across Long Island, as many residents face the possibility of losing their primary mode of transport and not making it work. A large percentage of people are still without power, but those with access to computers and the internet are using Facebook to find available fuel.

Local commuters have reported long lines at the pumps that do have gas, but the East End pumps have remained mostly dry.

As of 11:30 a.m. Monday morning, GasBuddy.com, a good site for finding gas prices and availability, reported that the Gulf station at 10 County Road 39 and North Sea Road was the only station with fuel in Southampton. Hess at 1138 Montauk Highway in Water Mill was pumping gas as of 9:14 a.m. Monday.

At 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, the Facebook group “Where to find GAS on Long Island” reported short lines at Sunoco in Wading River/Calverton and BP in Ridge, as well as a 40-minute wait at the Gulf station on Carlton Avenue in Islip Terrace and a 34-minute wait at Hess on Newbridge and Jerusalem in Bellmore.

The Gulf station on the corner of 25A and 107 in Old Brookville was pumping gas at 7 a.m. Monday morning.

Near the North Fork, Valero at 415 Flanders Road in Riverhead was pumping gas as of 11:40 a.m. on Monday, with very organized lines. Shamrock at 301 Flanders Road in Riverhead also had regular grade gas as of 11:40 a.m., but it was reportedly less organized and running out quickly.
