NEW YORK (AP) — Gasoline rationing in New York City was scheduled to end at 6 a.m. Saturday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued a news release Friday confirming the restriction would expire.

The system went into effect in the city Nov. 9, after damage to gas stations and fuel distribution networks caused by Superstorm Sandy led to hours-long lines for gas.

The mayor said more than 85 percent of gas stations in the city are now running, compared to 25 percent two weeks ago.

Under the rules, cars with license plates ending in even numbers could only be gassed up on even dates, and cars with license plates ending in odd numbers could only be gassed up on odd dates.

Similar rationing has ended in New Jersey and on Long Island.
