They are rationing gas in NYC based on an odd-even number license plate. I have a question
Based on the rule, license plates ending with an even number can fuel at the pump on even days and plates ending with an odd number can fuel at the pump on odd days. Well, my plate ends with a big fat ZERO. What days am I allowed to fuel at the pump?

Not that I live there, but what about people who have custom license plates without numbers?

last letter is alpha numeric converted A=odd and so on.

thats how they do it here during rationing.

thing is those plates usually mean you are rich enough not to worry about it.

Do you honestly think they have the time to check each person's license? lmao! it is simpler and more practical just to eye-ball the license plate.

Drivers with license plates ending in an even number can purchase fuel only on even-numbered days and drivers with plates ending in an odd number can buy on odd-numbered days. Vanity plates or those that don't end in a number will be considered odd.

It has to be the plate.. it could be prejudiced to ID everyone that wants gas.
If someone pulls up without a license we don't want to make them feel like criminals

I'm curious how they are going to enforce this at self serve gas stations with one person working behind the register.

They've got cops stationed at the stations. You can't drive up to a gas until a cop waves you thru.

And the fuel trucks are police escorted front and back. Crazy times.
