Long Island and New York Resort to Gas Rationing

Today, November 9th, New York City and Long Island will resort to gas rationing to reduce long wait times at filling stations.

Car owners who have a license plate that ends in an odd number can buy gas or diesel only on odd-number days, while those with plates ending in an even number or zero will be able to buy gas or diesel on even-numbered days. The license plates that end in a letter will be considered odd.

Officials hope than these new rules will ameliorate the fuel shortage caused by Hurricane Sandy after it hit the US East Coast. In New York only 200 gas stations are opened, which means 25% from the total of 800.

“Drivers are still facing long lines. Frustrations are only growing,” said New York’s Mayor Bloomberg at a City Hall news conference. “The best way, we think, to cut down the lines and help customers buy gas faster, to help gas stations stay open longer and to reduce the potential for disorder is to alternate the days that drivers can purchase gas.”

Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island will apply the same rule, while Westchester, Rockland, and Orange counties will not resort to gas rationing.
