Police say more than 100 vehicles were gathered in the lot and along Portion Road to buy gas from Robert Faulkner, the owner of Direct Marine Fuel Corporation, who was dispensing gas from a company-owned fuel delivery truck and selling it for $4.80 a gallon.

A fire marshal from the Brookhaven Town Department of Building and Fire Prevention responded and issued Faulkner, 48,  a summons for handling flammable liquids without a permit and a summons for improper dispensing of flammable liquids.
