Governor Andrew Cuomo: Mandatory generators at all gas stations in New York State

During every major hurricane in recent history the loss of electricity at gas stations has been the primary reason for the "gas shortage". The actual supply of gas is plentiful, yet the gas stations have NO POWER to supply the pumps. Thousands of gallons of gas are just sitting in the ground usless without working pumps.
Being an educator, I am familiar with unfunded mandates handed down from the State of New York. We believe owners should be required to have emergency backup power sources in order to operate a gas station in N.Y.S. Every gas station should be required to have solar panels or a gas powered generator if it is determined that they are located in a flood or hurricane zone. The cost for this mandate to station owners will be far more favorable compared to the lost revenue when the power goes out and they can't sell fuel in a time of need.
