RUMSON GAS STATION RUNS ON HAND PUMP
CBS News ran this story Monday about Richie Dodd, owner of the Rumson Exxon station. Still without electricity following Hurricane Sandy eight days ago, Dodd and his employees have been pumping gasoline from the West River Road station’s underground tanks by hand-cranked pump into canisters his customers have lined up with.
“You have to do it for the people,” Dodd says. “People have to get their generators going.”
