Greenwich to Westchester: Gas with No Lines Further Up I-95

Officials in Greenwich, the first town northbound New Yorkers come to in Connecticut, say fuel is available a few exits further along I-95 with no lines.

Saying gas stations in Greenwich are being overwhelmed by motorists getting off of the first Connecticut town along Interstate 95 northbound, town officials are calling for New Yorkers to seek fuel just a bit further up the line.

According to Lt. Kraig Gray, public information officer of the Greenwich Police Department, service stations in town have seen a “significant increase in their consumption of fuel and gas lines” as a result of its close proximity to Westchester County.

“Unfortunately, this has significantly increased the traffic and use of service stations, which is making it difficult for everybody,” Gray said. “Probably the best thing that would serve the residents from the New York area looking for fuel is to drive a few minutes further up the line, to Stamford, Darien or Norwalk, where they too have fuel and there are no lines.”

Con Edison has pegged a Nov. 10-11 restoration date for the area, and by late Thursday had restored power to approximately 55,000 of 210,000 affected homes.
