Lines are long for gas across Riverhead, with customers sometimes waiting over two hours to fill their tanks -- only to get to the head of the line and find the pump has run dry.
But students in the Riverhead Central School district have no worries that the gas situation will mean they could possibly miss any classes.
On Monday, Superintendent Nancy Carney assured that all of the buses in the school district run on either diesel or propane. Diesel has been easier to find during the current Sandy-induced gas crisis.
"Only our mini-buses or vans use regular gasoline. We are in good shape -- so far," Carney said.
