Greenfield Thanks Mayor For Listening To His Call For Gas Rationing To Ease Crisis


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.

  1. What are we rationing? There is NO GAS in Brooklyn, especially Bensonhurst. It doesn’t matter what day it is, odd/even there’s still NO GAS. This is a ridiculous solution to the problem, if the stations had gas, the lines wouldn’t be hours long. When will someone be honest with us and tell us WHY there is no gas here but we can spend more money, go over the bridge to Staten Island and there is plenty of gas. Power outage is not the problem here and it never was. I am so frustrated I want to scream, WHY IS THERE NO GAS IN BENSONHURST??????

  2. All over in Brooklyn there is no gas. Any gas station you go they are out of gas. If any gas station has gas you have to stay in line hours, and hours. This is ridiculas. On the other hand if we go NJ to fill up gas litterly there is no problem at all to fill up gas. No line and every gas station has gas. I think city wants us to go buy gas from NJ so city can earn money from TOLLS. This is unbearable. It’s a mayor Bloombarg plan at least I think.
