I'm not from New Jersey but a I have come across some news articles where people have been using #njgas and #njopen on twitter to find gas stations and other places open for business. I hope this helps.
yes makes sense, im in Edison and yesterday i drove to south brunswick to check up on my parents, needless to say 4 hours later and 3/4 of a tank later I made it there and back but now im on E. Today, I went to a local Sunoco that was selling to be told that they ran out of gas - go figure? So now, im in the position that my next adventure to the gas station has to be fruitful or be stuck with a dead car.
I know it is crazy, I'm doing security for a tanker right now and on the Parkway, there was a six mile long line for gas at a sunoco. Some people at the back of the line ran out of gas and are pushing their car.
I live in Middlesex County as well, one gas station that hasn't closed this whole time is the HESS stations on Rt.9 (both North and Southbound stations) in Woodbridge; near the HESS corporate building. It was my day yesterday to get gas and I only waited like 30min in line.
Lines seem to be much better today then they have been all of last week. With more gas stations getting power back and having alternating days, lines seem to only be in the 30minute range. I drive from central Somerset County down to Central Mercer County for work so I see a lot of gas stations.
