Edison Police Officer Charle Crincoli informs a motorist that they can’t get gas today, as they wait in long lines at the Tiger Mart Exxon on Route 1 and Parsonage Road in Edison, N.J., Saturday, Nov 3, 2012. Due to gas shortages caused by the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the state is rationing gas and has started an odd/even system. Today was an odd day so motorist with an odd number ending on their license plate were only the one allowed to get gas. This motorist had an even number ending on their plate and was turned away.
