EDISON - More than 250 New Jersey gas stations that were left without power during Superstorm Sandy are now eligible for $7 million in federal funding to buy generators.

The funding is being made available under the federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for gas stations on widely used roadways. Stations were chosen based on their proximity to evacuation routes and their fuel storage capacity.

The program is voluntary, with most of the selected stations eligible for up to $15,000 to install a permanent connection for mobile generators.

Currently, all 22 gas stations on the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway are equipped with backup power for outages.
