Odd-Even Gas Rationing in New York City

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Some New York State motorists are about to experience the inconvenience of gas rationing.

New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is imposing an odd-even gas rationing program. It takes effect at six o’clock Friday morning.

If your vehicle’s license plate ends with an odd number, you’ll be able to buy gasoline tomorrow (November 9). If the plate ends with an even number, you’ll have to wait until Saturday or try to find a station outside the city.

According to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office, no “fuel management measures” are planned elsewhere in New York State “at this time.”

A similar odd-even gas rationing scheme has been implemented in New Jersey.

The goal of the rationing programs is to shorten gas lines that have been a problem in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
