Gas rationing to end on Long Island

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Gas rationing will end Friday night into Saturday morning at midnight on Long Island.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced effective 11:59 p.m. on Friday, the temporary fuel management program that was instituted on November 9th has officially been suspended.

The original program was a coordinated regional effort designed to better manage and ease fuel challenges that arose as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

This temporary policy required gas stations to sell fuel only to drivers with vehicles bearing license plate numbers that correlated in odd/even terms with the day of the month.
