Damage from Hurricane Sandy has disrupted fuel deliveries and forced many gas stations in New Jersey and New York to close. The result: ridiculously long lines at those gas stations that remain open.

We feel for this young woman:

It was just a matter of time before someone tried to cut a line:

New York City authorities say a motorist was arrested after he tried to cut in line at a gas station in Queens early Thursday and pointed a pistol at another motorist who complained.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says 35-year-old Sean Bailey, of Queens, was arrested on charges of menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. It wasn’t clear whether he had a lawyer.
