· Vehicles with license plates ending in an odd number can make purchases of motor fuel on odd numbered days.
· Vehicles with licenses plates ending in a letter or other character can make purchases on odd numbered days.
· Commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles, buses and paratransit vehicles, Medical Doctor (MD) plates and vehicles licensed by the Taxi and Limousine Commission are exempt.
