New Jersey Rationed Gas So No One Can Buy Any

From the NYTimes Hurricane Sandy feed is a story about New Jersey rationing gas by license plate numbers:

The order reads: “If your vehicle’s license plate ends in a letter (A,B,C…), you are only permitted to fuel the vehicle on odd-numbered days.” Numbers are allowed on even-numbered days.
The problem: All license plates in New Jersey end in letters, except for vanity plates. So on Saturday, most everyone in the state could buy gas. On Sunday, no one can. Or so it seems.
Oops.
