SMITHTOWN - Long Island drivers say the new odd-even gas rationing plan resulted in shorter lines and fewer complaints today in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Drivers whose license plates end with an odd number or letter can only get gas on odd-numbered days. Drivers with license plates that end in an even number or zero can only get gas on even-numbered days.

Police say they will be enforcing the new system.

Commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles and taxis are exempt from the rule.
