Commuters flock to East New York gas stations despite snowy conditions

Commuters in East New York flocked to gas stations early Tuesday despite snowy conditions that continued to drop snow rapidly across the city.



Many gassing up at the Gulf Station along Linden Boulevard argued they still have to go to work today and that the snow wasn't going to stop them. 



Snow accumulations in Brooklyn will range from 4-8 inches by 12 p.m., and will be heavy at times, according to News 12 meteorologists.



Three inches of snow are already on the ground.



Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a state of emergency for New York, and all above-ground New York City subway service is suspended as of 4 a.m. today. 



The snow is expected to slow later this evening.
