Tells Motorists How
To Use Gasoline
How will 1 use my gasoline ration
card, once I have it?
In reply to this question which is
being asked by motorists through
out North Carolina, Theodore S.
Johnson, State rationing administra
tor, today set forth the ABC's of the
gasoline rationing program.
Consumers are registering this
week and they are receiving ration
cards intended to meet their needs
from May 15 until July 1. Beginning
July 1, a permanent gasoline ration
ing system will be launched.
There are five types of ration
. cards, these being: "A", "B-l", "B-2",
"B-3" and "X". Holders of the first
four types will be able to buy limit
ed quantities of gasoline, while those
holding "X" cards will be able to
make unlimited purchases. The
quantities of gasoline to be available
to holders of "A" and "B" cards will
be announced before May 15.
Ait motorists must piesent?then
automobile registration cards when
applying for a ration card, and ap
plicants for "B" and "X" cards must
fill out special application forms.
The "A" card is intended for the av
erage motorist who uses his car pri
marily for pleasure. The "B" cards
are for persons who need more gas
oline than they can get with an "A"
card, while the "X" cards are for
owners of motor vehicles whose op
eration is deemed essential to pub
The holder of an "A" card will
be able to buy seven "units" of gas
oline, while the "B" cards will au
thorize purchase as follows: "B-l",
11 units; "B-2", 15 units, and "B-3",
Applicants for "B" cards must
answer detailed questions about why
they need more gasoline than they
could otherwise get. For instance, a
man using his car to go to and from
work must tell how far he travels
each day. He must certify also that
he is attempting to reduce his mile
age by using public transportation
and by doubling up with his neigh
bors Taking into consideration the
needs of the motorist, the registrar
issues the proper card.
Once having gotten a ration card,
the holder may use up his units as
he likes without being limited to
any stipulated quantity for a given
! time. But if he buys all the gasoline
he is authorized to purchase before
July 1, he will not be able to get an
AU the motorist has to do is to
present his ration card at a filling
station, and his card will be punch
ed or the proper unit detached when
he makes his purchase. And the gal
lonage value of an "A" unit may dif
fer from that of a "B" unit.
