GREENWICH - A gas station that lies in both Greenwich and Port Chester, N.Y. is selling cigarettes from an old ice cream truck.

Sayd Sami says the gas pumps are in Connecticut but his store is technically in New York State.

He says when New York raised the tax on cigarettes by $1.50 last year, more than half of his customers disappeared.

He then came up with the idea of selling cigarettes out of an ice cream truck in Connecticut.

Sami says he's removed all of the ice cream decals from the truck so kids won't be confused.
