Fuel shortage, transit repairs continue as New York recovers from Sandy
NEW YORK (AP) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says officials expect the fuel shortage that has led to long lines and short tempers to continue for days.
He said Sunday that authorities aren't "100 percent sure'' when the shortage will end, but that it's a short-term problem.
Cuomo said the fuel delivery and distribution problems from Superstorm Sandy are easing and that more gas is coming to the area and will be distributed.
He urges people to not use their cars if they don't have to and not to hoard fuel.
Riders on New York City's transit system should be prepared that Monday's commute won't be normal, Cuomo said. He said service continues to be restored, but there's still work to be done.
Cuomo also said riders should expect bigger crowds, including students returning to school after the storm and people trying to avoid driving cars because of the fuel shortage.
