Hi frink, called out on Twitter to see if anyone knew. What I know is that earlier today Shell on Raritan Road in Clark was open and Sunoco in Cranford. I didn't see any open stations in Fanwood but I didn't make it all the way through Scotch Plains. I'll let you know if I find out any.

Are there similar updates from Scotch Plains - or are our town leaders still in the bunker?

Hi frink: sorry this is a bit late... this is what other residents said on Facebook about gas stations. http://www.facebook.com/scotchplainspatch/posts/479257148780921?notif_t=feed_comment
