The nearest gas station has raised the price of regular grade by 8 cents per gallon! I believe this is a seasonal price adjustment. The post-blackout season.
Someone called WABC radio about a gas station on Route 17 that charged $2.90 per gallon because they had a power generator and were thus the only gas station open last night. Of course, in a free market, gas stations can charge whatever they choose to in a crisis situation. And if they choose to do so, motorists can remember that and avoid patronizing the price gougers later on. That too is allowed in a free market.
Apart from that, life around here has pretty much returned to normal. Some parts of NYC were still without electricity today though.
