Gas smell in NYC being investigated

NYC smells like gas? Must be all the gas.

Officials have ruled out terrorism as the cause of a mysterious gas odor that spread through Lower Manhattan and Jersey City early Monday.

Maybe it's the pollution? And someone tell me when does NYC not smell like gas? For all of you out there not lucky enough to wind up in New York City, it doesn't usually smell like flowers. Actually, a smell of gas is an improvement.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersery, the New York City police and fire departments and various other city agencies are all currently investigating.

8 million people in NYC. Most need transportation. For those of them that don't want to get stabbed on the subway, they are forced to use vechiles that run on gas. I may have just solved the mystery.

In a morning press conference, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that he believes the odor, which he identified as mercaptan -- a chemical added to natural gas -- is not "dangerous."

"But then again, what do I know?"
