Casualties in fight over new gas pipelines: The customers

In this Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019 photo, Chris Miles points out some electric appliances at his restaurant, Batesy's, in the Rockaway section of New York. National Grid has imposed a moratorium on new gas hookups in parts of New York City, saying it can’t meet rising demand without the new pipeline. The showdown has hurt people like Miles, whose new barbecue restaurant in Rockaway Beach missed the summer season after it was denied a new gas hookup.
