Gas Rationing Ends

Nassau, Suffolk officials announce end to gas rationing at midnight Friday.

Gas Rationing Ends
One week after  gas rationing  was enacted to help ease fuel lines across Long Island, the policy will be suspended.

Nassau and Suffolk officials announced an end to gas rationing, which will take effect at midnight Friday.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone made the joint announcement to stop using odd-even license plate numbers for designated days to pump gasoline.

A fuel crisis gripped Long Island for nearly two weeks after Hurricane Sandy struck, creating hours-long lines for gas, purchase limits and claims of price gouging. But it mostly abated once rationing went into effect last Friday.
