Nerve cell metabolism

I need the following clarified if possible

1. What does a nerve cell's metabolism run on (glucose, oxygen, etc).
2. How are those nutrients obtained from the blood stream?
3. Is there a reserve of those nutrients in the nerve cell that has
to be replenished or is there a continuous transfer from the bloodstream?

Thank you in advance for any help.
