WEST BABYLON - A full week after Superstorm Sandy, Long Island's gas stations are still seeing long lines that span blocks and hours-long wait times. Even so, the Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association says the lines are starting to get shorter. As more Long Islanders regain power, there are fewer people waiting to fill up gas cans to run generators, according to Newsday. Drivers sat parked for hours at a station on Route 109 in West Babylon this afternoon. Even though the line wrapped around the corner and up another street, drivers said it was relatively short compared to some other local stations.Sandy Emergency ResourcesVIDEO: Latest Gov.
