WRIP: Greene County warns of short-term gas shortages

From WRIP radio host Jay Fink, via the station's Facebook group:

The Greene County NY Code Red system was activated a short while ago to inform residents of anticipated short-term shortages of some grades of gasoline in and around Greene County. Supplies of gasoline have been diverted to the New York metropolitan area in response to the need for gas in that region for generators and transportation. County officials are monitoring the situation, especially for price gouging, and ask residents to please conserve gas whenever possible.
