Mayor initiates odd-even license plate system for gasoline purchase in NYC

Beginning 0600 today, Friday Nov 9, the Mayor has established a temporary odd-even number system for gasoline purchases in NYC.  License plates ending in even numbers or a zero are allowed to get fuel on even days. 
License plates ending with an odd number, any letter, vanity plates including symbols (+, =, *, # etc.) may purchase gas on the odd numbered days of the month.

Due to storm damage, scheduled events and construction closures may be canceled.

The Queens Midtown Tunnel is open to traffic, with two lanes available in each direction.  Trucks are not permitted to use the tunnel at this time.  The tunnel remains subject to overnight closures as crews continue to repair damage to mechanical, ventilation, lighting, communications and other systems caused by the flooding.

The Holland Tunnel is open to traffic except for tractor-trailers, while the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel remains closed at this time.
The Battery Park Underpass remains closed in both directions.
Other Bridges and Tunnels may restrict traffic as needed.
