New Yorkers brace for post Sandy commute as they face traffic gridlock, gasoline shortages and public transportation disruptions threaten drivers and students who are returning to school after that devastating super-storm.

Following Super-storm Sandy, another challenge looms ahead for the people of that region. Commuters, school children and motorists are now forced out of their cars by a fuel shortage and find themselves relying on transit systems which are not capable of transporting them.

There is some good news and mostly bad news. Unlike last week, service on most subway lines connecting NYC Burroughs have been restored. But officials are warning that water-logged tunnels still aren't ready for rush hour and that fewer-than-normal trains are running. This is a recipe for a Manic Monday Mad Commute.
