I'd guess a union driver had to make the delivery. Just like the union prevented electricians and other utility workers from other areas working in NY after the storm. The non-union workers from other states were diverted to other states. Thousands in NY have been without power since Oct 30, and a lack of manpower for repairs is partly to blame.<quoted text>In my area, almost all the gas stations have backup generators. There's probably some stupid law up there prohibiting them.
But hey! New Yorkers love unions who love Obama.
