Gas Rationing Sees Shorter Lines at Some Stations

Governor's new gas plan and restrictions imposed by station owners results in slightly shorter waits in some places, same story in others.

At noon Saturday, Gov. Chris Christie's even-odd gas rationing mandate went into effect for 12 New Jersey counties, including Bergen, Essex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Warren.

The result, in some cases, was modestly shorter gas lines than have been seen in the days since Sandy hit. Of course, other stations featured the same long lines and interminable waits that have dotted North Jersey in recent days.

The gas rationing was a great idea.....something needed to be done to cut the lines. It definitely helped. Now more gas stations are up and running and most of the gas lines haves disappeared. If nothing else, it helped to calm down the tenseness that we all felt as we tried to power our generators and try to get to work. It was a good idea.
