Waze wants to help New Jersey residents find viable gas stations in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, but we need Wazers in the region to help.
After being contacted yesterday by The White House and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we are trying to help bring fuel to New Jersey residents suffering from the shortages.
Many gas stations throughout the state do not have gas, while others have lost power. However, using the crowdsourced information YOU provide, New Jersey Wazers can work together and direct each-other to stations that have fuel.
You will notice that when you open Waze, you will see several pins at gas stations. If you could, please leave a Chit-Chat message letting others know the fuel levels, prices and how long the lines are at gas stations. This information will be relayed back to The White House and FEMA.
Thank you for your help and cooperation. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by the hurricane.
