PLAINVIEW - Gas lines are returning across Long Island as a major snowstorm approaches the area.

After the gas supply problems following Hurricane Sandy, many residents aren’t taking chances and are filling up their tanks and generators before the blizzard hits.

While the lines aren’t as long as they were after the hurricane, some gas stations are running out of fuel.

Many gas stations say that they still have fuel available, but that time is running out before the snow and winds pick up.
