WWII Gas Ration Cards.
During World War II gasoline was rationed. Examples of some of that rationing are: An “A” Ration Card was for the general public and it allowed you to get 4 gallons of gas per week. A “B” Ration Card was for the general public whose work was essential to the war effort and they were allowed 8 gallons per week. A “C” Ration Card was for doctors and ministers. They could get as much gas as was needed to do their jobs. A “TT” Ration Card was for commercial truckers and it allowed them to get 5 gallons of gas per week. The “X” Ration Card was the highest priority of gas rationing. The holders of an X card could get unlimited gas. It was for people who needed gas as an essential to live. To the consternation of those who legitimately needed the gas, the X card went to many Congressman.
