Gas Rationing Begins Today – Odd-Even System Implemented

Posted By Ned Berke On November 9, 2012 @ 9:08 am In News & Features | 17 Comments

At 6:00 a.m. today, New York City joined New Jersey in instituting an Odd-Even License Plate System for gas purchases in an attempt to reduce long lines at gas-starved pumps.

Vehicles with license plates ending in an even number or zero shall only purchase fuel in NYC on even numbered days of the month. Passenger automobiles with license plates ending in an odd number shall only purchase fuel in NYC on odd numbered days of the month. License plates not ending in a number shall be deemed an odd number license plate.

This system will continue until further notice.

To help find functioning and stocked gas stations, you can use this map of Sandy-related initiatives [1], including gas stations, food distribution points, shelters, volunteer locations, etc. Similarly, there’s GasBuddy.com [2], and Hess has been updating its website [3] with location and inventory information every two hours.

Do you think the odd-even system will help you get gas?
