New Jersey To End Odd-Even Gas Rationing On Tuesday


gas-station-shortage-linesOdd-even gas rationing will end at 6 a.m. Tuesday in New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie announced.

New Jersey was the first to impose the system on Nov. 3 in an attempt to ease fuel shortages and long gas lines that sprung up after superstorm Sandy slammed the region.

The gas crisis developed in the aftermath of Sandy, which left many gas stations reeling because of a lack of power and problems getting deliveries.

On Monday, Christie said gas supplies are plentiful and there are no more lines at the pumps.

The rationing was in effect in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.

The odd-even gas rationing system remains in effect for Long Island and New York City, where it was imposed last Friday.

The restrictions have shortened gas lines in New York, but the odd-even rationing system hasn’t helped with supply, 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera reported.
