Mayor Bloomberg leading the band on this classic; as of 6am tomorrow if your car's license plate ends in an odd number you'll never guess when you can gas up. Go ahead, just try. Odd numbered days is correct. Double down on this one; If your plate ends in an even number which days might you be allowed to buy gas? See, you're getting good at this. OK, for the big money and no whammies; If your plate ends in a letter you fill up on...? 30 seconds.......20 seconds......hint: even or odd.....10 seconds....Your answer? Read the Tweets and see if you're a big winner.
To help cut down gas lines I am issuing an order to alternate the days that drivers can purchase fuel in NYC #SandyNYC #Recovery
Effective at 6 am 11/9: drivers in NYC whose license plates end in an odd number will be able to buy gas only on odd-numbered days
Effective 6 am 11/9: drivers in NYC whose license plates end in an even number or zero will be able to buy gas only on even-numbered days
Drivers in NYC whose license plates end with a letter will be classified as “odd” and may only buy gas on odd-numbered days
Commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles, buses and paratransit vehicles, MD plates & vehicles licensed by the TLC are exempt
NYPD officers will be deployed at gas stations, but we expect that NYers will respect the rule and work together to ensure compliance
This is not a step we take lightly. But given gas shortages and the growing frustrations of NYers, we believe it’s the right step.

Also a note from Johnny: Johnny has relaxed the regulations on giving drivers with New York plates gassing up in New Jersey wedgies.
