Even in the United States, gas stations shut down during blackouts because there's no electricity to run their pumps.<p>It was no different in the Philippines, where practically no fuel was available after Typhoon Haiyan struck. Aid agencies said the lack of gasoline was a major impediment to relief efforts.<p>One small American nonprofit called the Fuel Relief Fund is trying to change that.<p>Immediately after Haiyan hit, all the gas stations in Tacloban were shut, along with everything else.
