Police officers help keep order at a Hess gas station in the Brooklyn borough of New York where gas is still scarce, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Fuel shortages and distribution delays that led to gas hoarding have prompted New York City and Long Island to initiate an even-odd gas rationing plan which begins Friday at 6 a.m. in New York and 5 a.m. in Long Island. The line at this station was about an hour and 40 minutes, according to drivers waiting for gas. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
