NJ Governor Orders Gas Rationing in Some Counties
Christie says he wants to ease long lines and extended wait times at gas stations and prevent a fuel shortage in the state hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy.
Some gas stations closed because of a lack of electricity or gasoline, causing those open to be overburdened with customers.
Drivers with license plates ending in an even number will be able to buy gas on even-numbered days, and those with plates ending in an odd number can make gas purchases on odd-numbered days.
A Christie spokesman tells the Star-Ledger newspaper in Newark that there currently are no restrictions on filling gas containers.
