Gas Delivery at Hess Ignites Long Line of Cars in Bayport

The arrival of a fuel truck caught attention quickly as the line soon wrapped several blocks before gas was even pumped into station.

There are dozens of motorists in Bayport sitting in line to get gas at Hess about 3 p.m. shortly after a fuel delivery truck arrived at the Montauk Highway station. Police were on hand to manage traffic and the line that quickly snaked down the highway, south along McConnell Avenue and then west on Railroad Avenue.

Waited 50 minutes at 6:30. Filled tank on Subaru and 5 gal can. Hess attendants did fantastic job,as did SCPD.. Felt a little nostalgic for the old gsas crisis days of the '70s

I waited at two other stations for several hours each for generator gas, walk up. Hess had their operation streamlined with the help of Suff & NYState police. All of the Hess people were working to direct cars - excellent for a bad situation!

Michelle - I hope you get power quickly, I lived through that with a six month old in Hurricaine Gloria in 1985 and I know how awful that was....and it wasn't freezing then. My comment isn't for people who need gas for generators....they should be in the front of the line!

Is there any gas left?

Unfortunately no, I passed it this morning at 10:30 and there was a sign that said they only had diesel.
