Belleville Enacts 70′s Style License Plate Gas Ration

Officials in one northern New Jersey town are ordering gas to be rationed based on license plate numbers.

Belleville officials have passed an ordinance mandating the last digit on a resident’s license plate will determine which day they can purchase gas.

Odd numbers will correspond to odd days, even numbers to even days.

The Star-Ledger reports residents looking to fill canisters need to bring address identification.  The last digit on their address will be used to determine which day they can purchase gas.

Gas station managers who violate the ordinance could face a $2,000 fine or 90 days in prison.

The ordinance was approved Thursday and takes effect Monday, which is an odd-numbered day.

It will remain in effect until the state of emergency is lifted.
