Gas Rationing May End Monday
Governor says the rationing has worked
Gov. Christie says he may lift gas rationing on Monday.
The governor, speaking at a press conference in Seaside Park on Friday, said the rationing has worked well and eased congestion at gas stations.
But he expects all power to be restored by Sunday, so rationing should therefore end.
Drivers in the following counties are now limited on the days in which they can fill up their gas tanks: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union, and Warren.
According to the state, plates ending in an even number can fill up on even numbered days of the month, while plates ending in an odd number can fill up on odd numbered days of the month.
The number to look for is the final numerical digit contained in the plate number, whether it is the final character on the plate or not, according to the governor's office.
So, for example, a theoretical plate number of "MVM 48Q" would have "8" as its final numerical digit, and would be permitted to fill up on an even day.
Specialized or vanity plates, those not displaying any numbers, will be considered odd numbered plates, the release said.
