GAS RATIONING STARTS AT NOON ON SATURDAY: To help ease fuel shortages and extended lines for gasoline that have occurred since hurricane Sandy hit NJ the governor has instituted gas rations. Gas will be rationed based on residents license plate numbers. The last digit of your plate is what counts. Vanity plates (or all letters) are considered odd. So basically if your license plate is BF2-34V you would go on EVEN days because the 4 is an even number. IF your car has vanity plates with NO numbers, then you are considered an ODD number.
Here are the details
Governor Christie took action to prevent a fuel shortage and ease the problem of extended wait times and lines at gas stations by signing Executive Order 108, declaring a limited state of energy emergency with regard to the supply of motor fuel and implementing odd-even rationing for gasoline purchases in 12 New Jersey counties. Odd-even fuel sales will take effect in the following counties at noon on November 3, 2012: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union, and Warren.
Once in effect, all retail dealers of motor fuel will be required to only sell motor fuel for use in a passenger automobile bearing license plates, the last number of which is an even number, on even numbered days of each month. Likewise sales will only be permitted to passenger automobiles bearing license plates ending in odd numbers on odd numbered days of the month. Specialized plates – or those not displaying a number – will be considered odd numbered plates.
These sales provision will remain in effect for as long as the Governor’s limited declared state of energy emergency is in effect in those 12 counties. To read the Full Executive order CLICK HERE
