From Montclair township this morning, 8:25 a.m.:
Gov. Chris Christie signed Executive Order 108 Friday night (November 2) rationing vehicle fuel based on the last number of the motorist’s license plate. Montclair’s rationing ordinance which was passed prior to Executive Order 108, is no longer in effect.
Effective 12:00 Noon today, gas rations will start in 12 counties. The rationing will take place in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren counties.
Vehicles with license plates, the last number of which is an odd number, can only fill up at stations in these counties on odd-numbered days of the month.
Vehicles with license plates, the last number of which is an even number, can only fill up on even-numbered days.
Zero is considered an even number.
All license plates not displaying a number, such as vanity plates, are considered odd, and should fill up on odd numbered days of the month.
The ration order will remain in effect for as long as the limited declared state of energy emergency is in effect.
