STATE – New Jersey’s odd-even gas rationing system will come to an end at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning, Gov. Chris Christie announced today.
“The odd-even fuel rationing system was successful over the past 10 days, creating order and easing customer lines at our gas stations and helping reduce additional anxiety of New Jerseyans through a difficult period,” said Christie.
“This would not have been possible without the great work and efforts of first responders, private businesses, state and local governmental leaders, and all citizens of New Jersey. I thank them for that work and our ability to return to pre-Sandy fueling practices, another important step in returning to normalcy in the aftermath of the storm.”
The rationing system had been in place in 12 northern New Jersey counties since Nov. 3, as the state tried to deal with fuel shortages caused by Hurricane Sandy. Gas rationing remains in effect in New York City and portions of Long Island.
