Long Island's odd-even gas-rationing program will end at midnight Friday.
The measure was put into effect last Friday as a way to relieve frustration and long lines at the pump as the region continues to recover from damage Sandy caused to fuel distribution networks.
It will expire at 11:59 p.m. this Friday.
Until city officials say otherwise, the gas-rationing pattern will remain in effect in New York City.
New York City drivers take note: Drivers with license plates ending in an even number can purchase fuel only on even-numbered days and drivers with plates ending in an odd number can buy on odd-numbered days. Vanity plates or those that don't end in a number will be considered odd.
