Waited 2 hours at the Freeport armory before the whole line was told “there isn’t any gas”. Don’ t waste your time there isn’t any gas trucks there.

There isn’t any gas at the Freeport Armory. Was there this morning for hours. No truck, no one got gas. They finally came out to tell us at 7:30 “there’s no gas”.

Helen, I can understand your frustration at not finding gas at the Freeport Armory. I’m trying to get information out to my readers as soon as it comes in, and Governor Cuomo’s press office had sent out an announcement that there would be free gas waiting for those who went to the listed centers. Unfortunately, after sending out that press release, they had to give fuel to the first responders and residents like you were denied access to gas.
