Kean's Korner Mobil gas station on South Avenue is up and running after having been out of gas all weekend, while the Gulf station on South Avenue remained fuel-less as of 1 p.m. Monday, though the owner expected gasoline shipments to come in Monday afternoon.

According to Art Kean, owner of Kean's Korner Mobil gas station, the lack of gas was due to poor road conditions, especially in the New Haven area. Gasoline is imported to the state through the terminal in the New Haven harbor. Kean said his station was at the top of the list to receive fuel; he had two loads of gas come in at 12:30 a.m. this morning, which is equivalent to 17,400 gallons.

"There was no (gas) shortage, they just couldn't get the trucks on the road," he said.

Kean and the Gulf station owner, Lenny Fugaro, both expected that closing the pumps over the weekend would have an impact on their bottom lines.

"Three days with no gas means no money," Fugaro succinctly concluded.
