Mayor Bloomberg announced that the alternating odd-even licence plate system of buying gas will remain in place through Friday, according to a report in the New York Post.

The extension was enacted because 30 percent of the city’s gas stations are still closed. The mayor hopes to avoid long lines at the pump during the expected surge of motorists traveling during the holidays.

The gas rationing plan, which has been in effect since November 9, has already ended in New Jersey and Long Island.
