NEW YORK (CNN) -- A shortage of gas in some areas inside the Hurricane Sandy disaster zone is adding to the misery of storm victims.
Long lines at gas stations are frustrating residents. People say they are waiting hours at stations in New York and New Jersey only to reach the pumps and discover they've run dry.
Police have been called in to help keep order. Drivers, like these in New York city, describe disheartening conditions. One driver says, "I was in a line at three gas stations and they all closed down when I was getting close. And I missed a day of work. We come from Jersey. It took us probably three hours to get into the city. There was no gas there. And just to say I think it's a shame what's happening."
Along with frustrated drivers, people are also trying to fill-up gas cans to keep home generators running.
