NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 8 million gallons of gas has been delivered in New York.
He says another 28 million gallons is on the way.
Cuomo said Saturday that temporary fuel trucks are being sent to key locations in New York City and Long Island for emergency vehicles and the public.
There's a huge crowd at the free emergency mobile fuel station in Queens. The word got out quickly as distribution began there on Saturday.
Cars are backed up about 20 blocks. Throngs also are lining up with plastic gas cans. Buses had to divert because of the traffic jam.
The National Guard is directing traffic at the free emergency fuel station in Brooklyn.
Hundreds of cars were there on Saturday afternoon - and a lot of the drivers were honking their horns.
Some other key information about the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in New York:
POWER OUTAGES: About 900,000 customers remain without electricity statewide, down from a peak of about 2.2 million Tuesday. Most continue to be in New York City, its northern suburbs and on Long Island. New York State Electric & Gas reported about 47,000 on Saturday and Central Hudson Gas and Electric had about 3,700.
EVACUATIONS: 375,000 people were ordered to leave flood-prone zones in New York City.
SHELTERS: About 5,500 people at 15 shelters Friday in New York City.
DEATHS: At least 48, including 41 in New York City. Deaths were attributed to falling trees, drowning, electrocution and car accidents.
CLOSINGS: All New York City schools remained closed Friday and all but 65 are expected to reopen Monday. Students at those schools will be relocated. Service in 80 percent of New York's subway system resumed operations, including the tunnels between lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. Some tunnels remained flooded. All Metro-North commuter rails resumed full service. The Long Island Rail Road commuter lines will have limited service on all of its lines. Rush-hour traffic into Manhattan remained restricted to vehicles carrying at least three people. All three of the city's major airports are open. Amtrak restarted modified service to New York City, including from Albany-Rensselaer.
HIGHLIGHTS: After days of insisting the New York City Marathon would go on as planned Sunday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg canceled the race after sharp criticism from residents who said it was wrong to divert resources to the race while people were still suffering. The Defense Department set up emergency gas stations to distribute free fuel.
