NEW TRUCK FUEL RULINGJLATED OPA WILL HANDLE TEMPORARY INCREASES Full responsibility for handling temporary increases in farm motor truck fuel allotments for quarterly periods or less has bipen given the Office of Price Administration. The Office of Defense Transportation will retain responsibility for permanent changes, Bernard Sasia, chairman of the Kern County Farm Transportation Committee, announced today. Mr. Sasia said that the CFTC will co-operate with the OPA and ODT by continuing to make recommendations for farm truck gasoline i rations. Requests for changes of a permanent nature in motor fuel allotments will he made on a revised form Xo. CWX-1. However, OPA will use its own form, OPA-4-597, for applications for temporary or emergency supplies, the chairman explained. ^Jn explaining how the new procedure will operate. Mr. Sasia said that ODT's present certifications will remain in effect except where an application for a permanent change in allotment is approved by ODT. The only reason a certificate will be corrected is a permanent change in motor fuel allotment or a new operation, Chairman Sasia declared. He pointed out that OPA will determine and issue all temporary allotments for motor fuel for one quarter or less, and appeals by farm truck operators will be filed with the new agency, which issued the allotment previously.
