I'm following my daughter back to Bronx, NY tomorrow morning. She came home with the little ones last Saturday. I am a little nervous about getting gas in eastern PA before going into the rationed states. Anyone have first hand knowledge about what it looks like out that way? We are going to fill the tanks as late in the trip as possible.

Try filling up in NJ, it hasn't been bad, the closer you get to NYC the longer the lines will be. NY & NJ are on an odd/even license plate schedule, so keep that in mind.

If the last # on your tag is an odd number, you can get gas on the odd numbered days of the month and if even, then on even days in the month.

I'm in luck as an even for tomorrow. Not sure what my daughter's # is, but I'm taking an empty gas can with me, so I could at least get 5 gallons for her if necessary.
Thanks!

I live in Bucks County- Eastern PA. Everything here is fine as far as gas supply.

Pennsyltuckian here -

We go to the shore.

No problems getting gas in PA. Son is in central Jersey and they have no problems either. Just judge how far you are away then fill up. You can fill up again on your way home and you should be good!

Stay in the Bronx, do not go sightseeing down in the Rockaways in Queens!

Maybe it just seems cheaper in Jersey due to the side effects of MJ whistle
