Casualties in fight over new gas pipelines: The customers

In this Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019 photo, Chris Miles helps to prepare his restaurant, Batesy's, for opening in the Rockaway section of New York. Miles and his partners were ready to open their new, seaside barbecue joint just in time for the summer season when they got stunning news: There would be no gas to fuel the fryers, griddles and stoves. 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.
