Gravity is said to be real time and instantaneous and it is not at the speed of light. The gravity is also a particle-wave duality and the particle is called as graviton. The graviton has not been proved yet but it is theorized to exist

Its not so much being sustained as it is no longer being released from its source like the light. Just like the last of the light will take awhile to get here, so will the last of the gravity.
But what had us really scratching our heads was the gravity side of the equation. If the sun miraculously winked out of existance, would the Earth continue to orbit as usual for a certain amount of time or would it immediately fly of into space ?
