Sandy Fuel shortage work around

I'm a retired electrical contractor. Saw this morning a story on fuel shortages due to no power at the gas stations. There probably is a huge amount of fuel now stored that way. I also see the power trucks Being shipped in to restore power. The military has generator trucks & Portable gens could be provided to the power crews. It would be relatively simple for these crews to isolate the power panels at the stations to power them by gens & let the locals have access to fuel. I'm sure the station owners could quickly provide a list of locations & volume of fuels available. The power crew could work on problems local to the station area while the gens are working to provide fuel to local residents. Also they could maybe dedicate one pump just people trying to get gas for their own small generators Hope this helps.
