If you were planning an early start to the day by going out for gas this morning, you'll have a very long wait if you haven't left home yet in the Nyack area.
Extreme lines have already formed in Nyack and the lines are getting longer.
As the Mobil station on Route 59 at Polhemus Street in Nyack began selling fuel again this morning, a line quicky formed back to Route 9W, wrapping onto Route 9W and extending more than four blocks back to Nyack Hospital. An Orangetown police officer was assigned to traffic control duty at the intersection of Route 9W and High Avenue.
At the nearby Shell station on Route 9W at Catherine Street, a line had formed going down Catherine Street to Midland Avenue, even though the station is not yet selling gas.
In Upper Nyack, a line from the gas station at the intesection with Chrisitian Herald Road had a line that stretch south beyond Nyack High School.
Because of the area gas shortage created by Hurricane Sandy, Rockland County on Friday implemented a 10-gallon per individual limit on gas purchases.
