Casualties in fight over new gas pipelines: The customers

In this Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019 photo, primarily electric appliances line the kitchen of Batesy's restaurant in the Rockaway section of New York. Businesses and homeowners are getting caught in the middle as a utility presses state regulators to approve a natural gas pipeline between New York and New Jersey. The showdown has hurt people like Chris Miles, whose new barbecue restaurant in Rockaway Beach missed the summer season after it was denied a new gas hookup.
