I went through a 3 day with no power winter storm in early 2010 (this time last year). Here are a few things that I learned early during that 3 days, these will apply equally to an EMP that makes the power go out..
1) Gas stations need electricity to pump gas, so what you have in you tank and in the various jerry tanks in the garage is it. Period.

If you know it’s going to be a long term outage, then get a generator from someone to power the pumps. That should be one of the primary priorities. That is the standard response when a long term outage hits this area. Some gas stations around here already have generators as a standard item.
