NJ to End Odd-Even Gas Rationing on Tuesday




    New Jersey will end odd-even gas rationing Tuesday at 6 a.m.

    The order was put into place Nov. 3 by Gov. Chris Christie to help frustration and long lines at the pump following the storm that decimated the coast.

    Residents with license plates ending in an even number were restricted to buying gas on even-numbered days and residents with plates ending in an odd number were only able to make gas purchases on odd-numbered days.

    The order was in effect for the counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.

    New York City and Long Island began gas rationing on Friday. That program remains in place. 

    The hours-long lines at New York City gas stations seem to have eased since the rationing began there. Mayor Bloomberg says he's going to leave the system in place "for a while."
