New Jersey students discover overnight solution to gas crisis

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, millions were left without power, searching for food, and struggling to find open gas stations.

A group of high school students in New Jersey came to the rescue of those struggling to find gas stations open and with resources. Members of IMSOCIO at Franklin High School created, overnight, a crowdsourced map that locates open gas stations in the New York and New Jersey area.

The map identifies stations by using green, red, or yellow pins. Each color represents an open, sold out, or charging gas station.

To date, the Huffington Post reports that the map identifies about 100 stations.
