BRONXVILLE N.Y. - Not only did Hurricane Sandy knock down trees and leave residents without power, but it also left them searching for gas for more than a week.
As a result of the gas shortage in the beginning of November, Bronxville's Palmer Avenue was congested with vehicles, and motorists were forced to wait in bumper-to-bumper traffic for more than an hour.
Because of Bronxville's small size and its close proximity to public transportation, village officials urged residents to walk to their destination when possible.
The shortage was so severe that Bronxville residents were forced to travel to nearby gas stations in Yonkers to fill up their tank.
The lines at some gas stations were so long that Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano signed an executive order limiting motorists to 10 gallons of gas per visit.
Just as soon as the chaos began, all power was restored to the village, and gas stations were once again flush with gas.
