-- The latest on the fallout from Superstorm Sandy, which hit the East Coast last week.

_ GAS RATIONING: Sandy's power failures and damage complicated fuel deliveries and created a gas crunch. A rationing system based on even or odd license plate numbers went into effect Friday in New York City and Long Island, nearly a week after New Jersey instituted a similar system.

_ POWER OUTAGES: A wintry storm that hit the region this week created some new outages. But for the first time in 11 days, nearly all Connecticut residents and businesses have their power back on. Fewer than 20,000 New York City customers were in the dark. New Jersey still had 253,000 customers without power and Long Island nearly 200,000. That's down from a total of 5.5 million in all three states at the height of Sandy.

_ TRAVEL: The Queens-Midtown Tunnel, a major automotive route linking Manhattan to points east, reopened Friday after being flooded by Sandy's storm surge. A major auto tunnel linking Brooklyn to Manhattan is still out of commission. The New York City subway continues working toward full service.
