I’m surprised it’s been almost five whole years since I did the previous installment by this name.   The sixth boro is a huge fuel transfer port, and currently Sandy has moved oil back onto everyone’s brain . . . mostly because of how difficult it is to procure.  Fuel is gold.  The other day when I was standing in line to get to vote, the joke I heard several times was that at the end of the line we’d either get a ballot or a five-gallon container of fuel.

New York harbor is filled with expensive vessels either waiting to move fuel  . . . like Dace Reinauer,

Pati R. Moran, or

Rebel.  Or

they’re actually moving it . . . like from Eagle Matsuyama to this Bouchard barge probably usually pushed by

Evening Star.

Or fuel is actually being moved from one to another node in the distribution chain . . . like here Diane B,

Mako,

Pocomoke,

Pocomoke and Comet (in foreground),

B. Franklin Reinauer,

and Evening Mist . . ..

All this movement notwithstanding, gas rationing is still in effect.

Anyone read whether consumption has decreased because of the rationing?
