FINAL - Service Area Status Report

Thursday, Nov 8 - 4 p.m.

Executive Order

  • Governor Christie declared a limited state of energy emergency and ordered odd-even rationing for gasoline purchases in 12 New Jersey counties. Fourteen of the 23 service stations on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway are located in counties where gasoline sales will be limited by license plate numbers. Motorists with license plates ending in odd numbers will be allowed to buy gasoline in the restricted areas only on odd numbered days of the month. Motorists with license plates ending in even numbers will be allowed to buy gasoline in the restricted areas only on even numbered days of the month. License plates that have no numbers will be considered odd numbered plates.
