Long Islanders line up for $1.06 gas

The average price of a gallon of gas reached a record $3.65 today. Cheap gas is worth the wait for 106 lucky Long Islanders.

The Newsday article cites an interesting survey:
But one sacrifice many Long Island drivers appear unwilling to make is swapping a bigger vehicle for a more fuel-efficient model. Conducted amid rising fuel prices in February and March, a survey of 850 Long Island residents showed that, while one-tenth of drivers would consider buying a hybrid and 14 percent would consider a compact, roughly two-thirds of drivers preferred something other than a smaller car with better gas mileage.
