  • ELMSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — The delays at the gas pump after Superstorm Sandy continue.

    On Friday, long lines formed in suburban New York's Westchester County as early as 6 a.m.

    Dozens of cars snaked along the breakdown lane of an expressway waiting for gas at a rest stop in Yonkers. On the other side of the highway, about 30 cars lined up on an exit lane trying to get into a gas station, interrupting traffic.

    In the village of Elmsford, lines also formed at the few gas stations that remain open. Yellow tape is pulled across driveways of stations that are closed.

    Power outages and flooding from the storm have forced many gas stations to close and disrupted the flow of fuel from refineries to ones that are open.
