Update: Piccozzi's is now out of gasoline

AMBROSE CLANCY PHOTO | A “no gas” sign appeared at Piccozzi’s on Tuesday.

Piccozzi’s Service Station on Shelter Island posted signs Tuesday that it had run out of fuel, making the Island just another Long Island community with no easy access to gasoline.

Piccozzi’s had continued to pump fuel as soon as it had electrical power after the storm last week. Lines were long for a while but by Monday the lines were rarely more than a few cars.

But on Tuesday that supply was gone.

Governor Cuomo and other officials have said the New York-New Jersey regional gasoline squeeze should be ending this week as closed stations reopen and interrupted supply lines become functional again.

The Island’s only other service station, O’s market, ran out on Thursday morning after the storm.

Piccozzi’s had a line extending up Route 114 and along Winthrop Road last Thursday. The wait was about 45 minutes, according to drivers. Shelter Island Police were directing traffic and drivers were patient with the wait.

Sales were limited to $50 a driver, cash only. George Hoffmann of Piccozzi’s said he had no idea when he’d receive a new supply of gasoline.

  • I have observed that over the course of building a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every real estate exchange, a percentage is paid. All things considered, FSBO sellers don’t “save” the payment. Rather, they try to win the commission by doing an agent’s occupation. In accomplishing this, they commit their money in addition to time to carry out, as best they can, the jobs of an real estate agent. Those tasks include uncovering the home via marketing, delivering the home to all buyers, creating a sense of buyer urgency in order to prompt an offer, preparing home inspections, managing qualification checks with the mortgage lender, supervising fixes, and facilitating the closing.

  • I as well as my guys have been checking the good guidelines found on the website and so instantly I got a terrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for those tips. Those young boys were absolutely warmed to see them and have absolutely been tapping into those things. Thank you for truly being very considerate and for selecting this sort of superb resources most people are really desperate to be aware of. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner. —- Now a days content marketing become crucial…I have awesome book to sharehttp://cubemarketinginc.com/content_Marketing_101/ContentMarketing.htm
