GASOLINE RATIONED TO SAVE RUBBER
Sticker Needed to Purchase Gasoline
WASHINGTON, D.C.— William Jeffers, Rubber Director of the War Production Board, quoted from the September 1942 Baruch Rubber Report submitted to President Roosevelt when he said, “Gas rationing is the only way to save rubber.” Nationwide gasoline rationing has been in effect since December 1 of last year. The Office of Price Administration reminds citizens that in addition to the required gasoline ration coupons, an appropriate mileage ration sticker must be affixed to a vehicle’s windshield in order to purchase gasoline. To receive a mileage ration sticker, one must appear before his local War Price and Rationing board and certify both a need for a gasoline ration and ownership of no more than five tires.
