Planning to drive from NYC to MA is there gas in CT?

Wondering how far up the coast is the gas shortage a problem? I will definetly need to get gas before entering back into NYC area on my trip back Sunday. Anyone know where the gas shortage problem stops?

I'm in central/eastern CT and have not seen any problems with gas shortages, or even lines.

I believe it is primarily Fairfield County, particularly the towns closest to New York State. Many gas stations in Greenwich on empty; Stamford is spotty, too.

I live in Bridgeport, some minor lines. The highway rest stops seem ok.

The highways have gas stations on them. You do not have to get off the highway to buy gas.

I think you may be worrying overly so.......

Only the actual shoreline towns and citys had much damage and most of that is from the beginning of Fairfield County in Greenwich to Norwalk . Fairfield coastline will not effect you at all nor will Westport or Bridgeport or Stratford or MIlford unless you are going to these areas....driving down the highway to another destination will not put you in these towns orbits !!
