Will Be Lower Quality As Well
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Office of War Information (OWI) yesterday released the results of a survey indicating the quickly increasing demand for gasoline by the rapid build-up of the armed forces. The OWI predicted this will necessitate additional drastic cuts in civilian use through restrictions on driving. The OWI further predicted what gasoline will be available for civilian use will be of a lower quality than current gasoline stock. The OWI survey was released on the heels of news the Petroleum Administration for War (PAW) has been reorganized in the area of foreign oil sources. This reorganization is intended to make better and greater use of foreign oil sources to alleviate the strain on domestic sources.
