NEW YORK (AP) - At least for one day, drivers in the New York region seem to be getting a break from spending hours in gas lines after Superstorm Sandy.

Around New York City, they still waited longer than usual Saturday at stations. But the lines that stretched a dozen Manhattan blocks earlier in the week at some stations were far shorter. Many were closed - for lack of fuel or taking a break.

In Brooklyn, drivers waited about 20 minutes at most, much less than in previous days.

But on Staten Island, the few open stations were busier, with about 20 cars lined up on one street amid stalled traffic.

In New Jersey, state-imposed gas limits continued in 12 of 21 counties.
