In a coordinated regional effort designed to better manage and ease the current fuel challenges, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone, in partnership with New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, announced plans today to institute a fuel management system in both Suffolk and Nassau counties that will go into effect at 5:00am Friday, November 9, 2012. This temporary policy will require gas stations to sell fuel only to drivers with vehicles bearing license plate numbers that correlate in odd/even terms with the day of the month in accordance with the following requirements:
• Drivers with license plates ending in an even number will be able to purchase fuel only on even-numbered days and drivers with license plate numbers that end in an odd number will be able to purchase fuel only on odd-numbered days.
• License plates such as vanity plates that do not display any numbers will be considered odd-numbered plates.
• Out of state vehicles will be subject to the same requirements when purchasing gas in Nassau County.
• This policy does not apply to commercial vehicles, taxi or limousine fleets or emergency fleets, nor does it apply to hand held gas canisters.
