MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey will end odd-even gasoline rationing at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Gov. Chris Christie says gas supplies are plentiful and there are no more lines of motorists waiting for fuel.

Christie imposed the rationing on Nov. 3 because some gas stations couldn’t get fuel while others didn’t have electricity to pump it as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

Rationing was put in effect in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.

The governor noted New Jersey was first to impose rationing and that others followed the state’s lead. New York did not impose rationing until Nov. 9, six days after New Jersey.
