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.READ MORE: 2022 Wawa Welcome America Festival Guide: Road Closures, Public Transportation Information
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.
