Transcript for Superstorm Sandy: Power Outages, Gas Shortages Continue
And now, to the very angry and frustrated victims of hurricane sandy. Hundreds of thousands still without power and demanding answers, some 12 days after the devastating storm hit. As the long lines show, getting gas is still a big problem around parts of new york, as well. But what's not a problem is getting a special delivery in the mail, power bills. Abc's john schriffen has the latest from hicksville, long island. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning. It is day two of the gas restrictions in new york city and here on long island. To give you an idea how fast this gas is going, just a few minutes ago, they put this sign on this pump, no more gas. Five out of the eight pumps at this station, drivers are telling us that the lines continue to wrap around the corner, more than an hour long. And they're only getting longer. But if you think these drivers are frustrated, meet the people here on long island who still don't have power. You're a liar. You're a liar. Reporter: Look out for the torches and pitch forks because the residents on long island are beyond angry. Going on nearly two weeks with no power. Now, turning on their elected officials. They are all working to make things better. There is not -- Reporter: In this region, there are still hundreds of thousands without power. One of the biggest offenders, the long island power authority. To put it mildly, life has been unresponsive. Without sending out update letters or apologies, could you believe what some people got in the mail? A bill. Nobody knows nothing in the building. Reporter: Trying to take matters into their own hands, one woman even carrying her 14-month-old son, they stormed the power company's building to get answers. Who gets the blame? Reporter: In a last-minute press conference overnight he was a no-show. Leaving the company that manages the grid to make the heat. The customers impacted by the storm will be restored by the end of day tuesday. We'll continue to work tirelessly until all of them are restored. Reporter: The frustration doesn't end the. In a community depending on cars and generators, long lines snake around gas stations, the ones that are actually open for business. To shorten the wait, new york city and long island implemented a rationing program friday. But our own linsey davis found one woman breaking the rules, challenging the government to step it up. It doesn't make any sense what they're doing to us. It is not -- you don't think they should ration the gas? At all. At all. I think they should do the work. Reporter: Because a major oil refinery in our region went down because of the storm, experpts say there have fewer deliveries. Meaning these lines here at the pump could be here to stay for at least the next few weeks.
