NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a message for New Yorkers in long gas lines: Help is on the way.

Cuomo said Saturday that the gas shortage brought about by the superstorm was due to tankers being held in the harbor and not allowed to make deliveries. He said state and government officials had been working with the Coast Guard to get those tankers released.

He said 8 million gallons of fuel had been delivered and another 28 million will be delivered over the next few days.

The Department of Defense will also be setting up mobile fuel stations around the New York metro area to distribute gasoline, with a 10-gallon, per-person limit but the fuel will be free.

"Fuel is on the way," Cuomo said.

"Do not panic. I know there is anxiety about fuel. ... The situation has been remedied. Gas stations will be getting fuel," Cuomo said.
