Needless Gas Usage
Inquiry at the meeting held in the Elks hall
Wednesday evening brought out the fact that too
much gas is used in obtaining gas. That sounds a
little thick but putting it the way one man said
it "why is it necessary for me to burn one gallon
of gas in trying to get five gallons?", meaning'
of course, that each time he wanted additional
gas he had to make a trip to the local board from
wherever he was working.
There is another case in mind. A party wishing
to go to Portland made application for extra gas.'
Before the application could be filed it was ne
cessary for that person to make a trip home to get
some data: If properly informed the party had to
return home a second time, but that may not have
been the board's fault. Nevertheless, the applicant
was burning gas that was greatly needed in the
every-day use of the family car and certainly not
saving the precious fluid in the manner expected
by the OPA.
If the same rule is in practice throughout the
nation it is little wonder that the OPA is having,
difficulty counteracting the black market. The
man in question boldly stated to the OPA auth
orities that he had to "borrow" a gallon of gas to
get to town last night and that he probably would
