New York's Mayor Bloomberg has introduced a petrol rationing scheme as three quarters of the the petrol stations in the city have been forced to close due to fuel shortages.
The system, which follows a similar rationing regime implemented in New Jersey last week, begins at 6am tomorrow morning.
New York City has been hard hit by fuel shortages since Sandy hit ten days ago.
Emergency vehicles, buses, taxis and certain other vehicles are exempt from the rationing system.
