NEW YORK - Gasoline rationing in New York City will extend at least through Friday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday.

The odd-even system based on license plate numbers, launched to help cope with dramatic fuel shortages after Superstorm Sandy, has helped reduce long lines for fuel, but a third of the city's retail stations are not yet operating, the mayor said in a statement.

"The odd-even license plate system has worked well and helped to reduce wait times and lines at the pump," the mayor said.
