NEW YORK (AP) - Police are at gas stations in New York to enforce a new fuel rationing plan that lets motorists fill up every other day.
Officials say it was imposed in New York City and on Long Island because something had to be done to ease the long waits for gasoline, which they say has caused panic-buying and hoarding.
A nor'easter that knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of new people - mostly in New York and New Jersey - also has erased some of the progress made by utility crews. Some people, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, have lost patience and are demanding investigations of utilities they say aren't working fast enough.
