Motorists were greeted with long queues in Fort Lee, New Jersey to fill up their vehicles as fuel shortages hinder the region's efforts to recover four days after Superstorm Sandy.

The queues stretched back a couple of miles at times and some customers elected to stand in lines at the station forecourt to fill up containers with petrol as residents in the badly affected state worry about petrol shortages.

Fuel shortages have been reported in a number of states following the storm that killed at least 98 people in ten states.

Across the New York and New Jersey region at the heart of the natural disaster, the vast transport systems lurched to life, but tempers were short in long lines at petrol station forecourts.

In New York, a man was accused of pulling a gun on a motorist who complained when he cut in line at a petrol station; no one was injured.
