Cabdriver Harum Prince joined a nearly mile-long line for gasoline early Friday in Manhattan after already spending three hours in a similar queue in the Bronx – only to have the station run out of gas when it was almost his turn.
Prince leases his cab from a garage for $130 a day; in order to make money, he has to beat that in fares, plus what it costs to buy gas. And with all the time spent waiting, he hopes he can somehow get fuel and make the money back before he has to turn the cab in at 5 p.m.
