NY Thruway Upgrades Travel Plaza Gas Pumps

Times Union (Albany) reports, “You might want to top off your tank before you take your next trip on the New York State Thruway. . . . Between November and July, various Thruway travel plazas on at least 52 occasions had some kind of outage at their gas pumps. . . . ” A thruway spokesman says there is no gasoline shortage, but some intermittent shutdowns have been necessary as the thruway upgrades the credit card processing mechanisms on its pumps.
