With New Jersey town implementing 1970's style licence plate gas rationing, we though you would like to take a quiz.  But first, ponder this thought from conservative icon Michelle Malkin, who lived through the first rationing in south New Jersey:

"My memories of gas rationing under Carter were vivid and indelible. I was a grade-schooler in south Jersey My younger brother and I sat in the back of an Aspen wagon with our panting poodle.  It was hot, sticky, slow & miserable. Government-engineered malaise at its worst. And now: History repeats itself."

With that in mind please take our quiz, oh and try not to cheat by looking at fashion or make and models of the cars:
