I was at Denco yesterday, around 4.30 - IN THE PUMP AREA - next in line. Suddenly there were FIVE police cars, and we were ALL forced to leave. One officer told us to park in the Labco lot, and they would tell us when they were ready to serve us (they already were - as far as I could tell). Another was telling people there was NO GAS. WTF? what was going on? Anybody else see this?

Jesse: Denco is open today, Sunday Nov. 4 for even numbered license plates. I have heard anecdotally that lines are long.

They did the same thing to me on Friday - I was 2nd to get in the driveway & they made me leave & filled Maplewood & Union Police cars etc. Funny thing is I was trying to get gas for a 92 yr old person who I gave my generator to since I had power & they didn't want to hear it. Can you believe it?
