Gas Rationing Eases Fuel Crunch in NYC

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says odd-even rationing seems to have eased the post-storm gasoline crunch in New York City, but he's not sure when he'll lift the restriction.

The system began Friday in the city and on neighboring Long Island after Superstorm Sandy disrupted the metropolitan area's gasoline distribution network. New Jersey implemented the odd-even plan earlier and is ending it Tuesday morning.

The hours-long lines at New York City gas stations seem to have eased since the rationing began there. But Bloomberg says he's going to leave the system in place "for a while."

The mayor calls it "not that much of an inconvenience."
