There is a need to know where gas stations are open. Many local residents need to keep generators running. Does anyone out there have that information?

I went up to Bloomfield. Exit 148 off the GSP. Not bad, 7 exits away, the Shell Station is open.

Shell station on north ave in Roselle Park is open. The Sunoco on Centenial in Cranford is open also. Those were the two that I saw in the last hour.
