From Councilman David Greenfield’s office:
Councilman David G. Greenfield is thanking Mayor Michael Bloomberg for finally instituting a gas rationing plan to help alleviate the ongoing gas crisis, something he called for nearly a week ago. Yesterday, Greenfield publicly took the Mayor and Governor to task for not doing enough to solve the gas crisis. Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg announced that gas rationing goes into effect at 6 am Friday, November 9, 2012.
“I am glad that the mayor has recognized the severity of this gas crisis, especially in areas like Brooklyn, where it has become the biggest issue for many residents. This situation has quickly gotten out of control over the past week, making it imperative that government take immediate action to reduce lines at local gas stations. While this decision to institute gas rationing in New York City should have come days ago, it is a relief that the mayor is finally taking much needed action on this issue,” said Councilman David G. Greenfield.
As of today, if you have a license plate with an odd number you can fill gas on an odd day and vice versa. So for example, today is November 9th. Nine is an odd number, so you can only fill up tomorrow if the last number on your plate is odd, Greenfield explained.
