Across the call.
Ten days after sanity and the northeast is still suffering there is some gas out that you can get it but not that much.
Some stations -- -- yes they off but even those some of -- running real low on fuel and we don't getting in new fuel shipments that seems to be the situation.
-- and Honda is all about that he is at the gas buddy he is where the gas -- dot com I was joking about -- -- -- I have given you would in all it's not a free publicity that I expect get -- to -- lawyer helping certainly helping the motors in the situation -- we're talking about where did it casts -- year old cost.
Seriously why do we still have a gas line problem in New Jersey and possibly.
You know any problem we've had from power outages and terminals that don't have gasoline has been made worse by the fact that everybody in New York City seems to be out there waiting at a pump.
In one of the Five Boroughs and that's what's really make the problem worse we have an insatiable demand suddenly for gasoline because people think.
That there is a real shortage so you're seeing intense the man.
What will likely be followed by very little demand in the weeks ahead -- do we have a supply problem.
-- why aren't why don't Dicey fleets of tank cuts coming in from other states delivering gas and -- well you know.
Who that there is part of that is the problem is logistics getting all the tankers but we don't suddenly have so many takers just standing by -- they're likely going further distances to get the gasoline.
Then they're going out for another shipment in some terminals -- You know don't have gasoline and so trucks are going further so there's more time to deliver.
Let's turn around you know Patrick a lot of people are saying wait a minute I've been went out power no gas for ten days it's no fun I would -- we could have arranged the logistics just a little bat.
Are you not at all critical of the logistic situation don't know it's it's been a -- New York City you know could have done a lot more they could be rationing fuel even obviously New Jersey has it's been a mess and you know there hasn't been enough -- her responses stations stations having lines but.
There's only so much you can do when people -- in panic mode and want to buy -- Secondly that you would you also say the president should have redirected in the entire stimulus I'm not -- -- -- Toward the terminals that have been flooded -- you can't drop off gasoline.
At the privately owned terminals and and get them on the trucks -- we have done more infrastructure spending full or instead -- this piecemeal you know pork barrel spending that's going on to help.
Gasoline get to where it's needed well you know.
I think it's when he toy if we spend does that mean that power on thing going forward to -- -- -- -- you know it's it's certainly.
Advisable -- to have these terminals not have the possibility of going down the storm or they should be the first priority.
Once things do come back online because gasoline is obviously tied into what we do you on a daily basis driving to work living our lives.
Gasoline stations and terminals should be among the first to get power back and I asked a simple question how much energy does it take his -- gas stations had a gas but they didn't have powers they couldn't pump -- out.
How much energy I -- couldn't seem that for all the talk the president made about how he's gonna get rid of the red tape and -- Why doesn't -- just -- generator in these places well some places are hooked up to accept a generator but that's a great point why do you why do more gas stations not have generators you know -- emails.
From TV Chinese guys -- -- that the president said okay we're gonna cut out all the red tape we're gonna get them what they need well he hasn't.
No that's right he hasn't and maybe there's definitely room for improvement there because and not enough stations still have power or gas -- -- Gary generator is what is a thousand dollars holds a glass to set the way -- up at least one -- on your operation that's a pretty simple thing is that why.
Yeah that's it that's a great question I don't have that answer you know what -- expect that more could have been done service real fast Patrick how much longer about the gas problem laughs well you know only 25% of stations in New York City in the Five Boroughs have gasoline that's that the credit percentage 25% we just what we have African pump them.
Can pump gasoline that have gasoline I don't know about power outages are probably aren't a whole lot of power outages but only 25% of stations have been reported to us as having -- so it's still -- huge problem the Patrick would do appreciate being with us today thanks for coming publicity against thanks -- --
