Report problems at the pump

The Freeman is reporting that the gas-buying frenzy has hit the lower parts of the Mid-Hudson Valley.

You can check out area prices provided by Gas Buddy and notice that the closer you get to New York City, the higher the prices get.

A Facebook friend (WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT TO. MEANIE!) suggested sharing stories at the pump to get a sense of what's happening.

I thought that was a great idea. So let's report shortages, long lines, higher than unusual prices and other problems at the pump with SeeClickFix and see if we can at least make some sense out of this.
