WOODBURY - Residents on Long Island say they are cautiously optimistic about the future of gas, as lines at stations have begun to ease up.

Continued power restoration and gas rationing have helped the crisis, but Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association's Kevin Beyer says we are not out of the woods yet.

He says that trucks are still waiting on lines to load up their tankers, so there is still a considerable backlog. Also, some stations throughout Long Island are still closed due to damage, no gas or lack of electricity.
