PETROL rationing imposed in 12 counties in New Jersey following Superstorm Sandy has officially ended.
Rationing began on November 3 because some petrol stations could not get fuel while others did not have the electricity needed to pump it.
Governor Chris Christie said petrol supplies are now plentiful and there are no more lines of motorists waiting for fuel.
But rationing will continue in New York City and on Long Island.
New pictures issued by the U.S. Geological Survey, show the damage to some of the worst hit areas during the storm.
The colourful pier in Seaside Heights, New Jersey stands in ruins, while a structure that once stood on Fire Island has been levelled.
Thousands of people on Long Island are still without electricity, more than two weeks after the superstorm hit.
Power authorities said they had 46,000 customers who were still without power, because their homes were damaged so badly in the storm it would not be safe to reconnect them.
