Gas Rationing Officially Ends on Saturday

Mayor Bloomberg signs an order confirming odd-even gas rationing is over in NYC

Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday signed an order confirming that beginning Saturday, November 24, at 6:00 am, New York City motorists will no longer have to check the last number in their licensed plates against the calendar day before fueling up.

According to Mayor Bloomberg, the odd-even gas rationing system instituted on November 9, following Hurricane Sandy officially would expire, as 85 percent of the city’s gas stations are back up to capacity.

“With more than 85 percent of gas stations now operating – a substantial increase from just 25 percent two weeks ago – and Thanksgiving and Black Friday behind us, the odd-even license plate system will be rescinded,” said Bloomberg.

For the past two weeks, the odd-even license plate system not only significantly reduced extreme lines, but also eased anxiety for hundreds of thousands of drivers across New York City, said Bloomberg.

The price gorging and panic buying of gas is what caused a lot of the long lines. I decided not to join any long line and get caught up with all that mayhem and I was fine with what I had. The whole evant was so artificial. Did anyone noticed that the day the rationing was announced, the lines immediately returned to normal and the abuse stopped. How was that so instant? Think about it?
