Some Conn. stations already out of gas

Posted: Updated:

TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) - Some Connecticut stations already have run out of gas during the rush to prepare for the approaching blizzard.

Motorists say stations in Torrington, West Hartford, Vernon, East Lyme and other towns ran out of fuel Thursday afternoon and evening as people filled their cars and trucks as well as containers for generators and snow blowers. Long lines were reported at many stations.

Cumberland Farms worker Brittany Brienza in Torrington told the Register Citizen that her store had to shut off its pumps at about 5 p.m. Thursday after running out of gas and had to refund money to customers who prepaid before the gas ran out. The station ran out of fuel despite getting a gas delivery Wednesday.

Brienza says it's not clear when the next gas delivery will arrive.
