Lines At The Pump? You May Want To Head South, Says Gov. Christie

BRICK, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie says motorists frustrated by long gas lines in northern New Jersey might want to head to South Jersey.

Christie said Friday only 25 percent of stations north of Interstate 195 are open and operating. But he says 90 percent south of I-95 are in service.

Widespread power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy have left many stations unable to operate their gas pumps.

At a news conference in Brick, Christie said federal emergency management officials will be delivering generators to gas stations that are equipped to use them.

But he notes that not all stations can run on generators.
