Bhalla crosses the line for gas

Hoboken Councilman Bhalla wanted free gas while you suffer

If this doesn’t get your goat – I don’t know what will.

As you know, Hurricane Sandy caused a major crisis with gasoline availability across the state of NJ – and Hoboken especially. That said, many people patiently waited in line for hours – or even drove out of state to get their fuel.

And in Hoboken – several gas stations (including the Sunoco and Hess stations uptown) – when they had gas, were reserved for FIRST RESPONDERS ONLY. That means fire, police and ambulance.

Hoboken411 found out that Councilman At-Large Ravi Bhalla showed up at the Sunoco station with HIS PERSONAL CAR a few nights ago. He was clearly told that the station was authorized only to give fuel to those first responders, and not civilian personal vehicles. He apparently hemmed and hawed and created a scene – and was eventually allowed to fuel up his car (probably just to shut him up).

But not only did he get gas reserved for people worked to the bone rescuing residents during and after the storm – HE HAD THE NERVE TO ASK THAT THE COST WAS “PUT ON THE CITY’S TAB!” That’s right – he wanted you the property taxpayers to pay for his personal gasoline!

Can you believe this guy? Unacceptable, entitled attitude he has! What makes him more special?

While waiting one’s turn might be for the Dalits, I know with absolute certainty that “first responders” in the case of the recent gas shortages is short for “first responders and their friends and family” everywhere in the state. Long Island too.

FYIGM is becoming the national motto.

I know the guys at Sunoco and you are right on. They were full with gas and Police took over their station for three days telling their normal patrons and people needing fuel that there was no gas. It was supposed to be going to first responders however it managed to get into first responders “personal vehicles as well as the vehicles of their friends and family.”

While I totally understand the city reserving gas for first responders this is a huge abuse of the system.

And just so everyone knows the Sunoco guys felt horrible turning people away. And felt embarrassed as those same people turned away watched many civilian vehicles gas up on their dime!
