Over half of the total of all supplies shipped to die front is petroleurrt in one form or another. From 1942 to 1944, output of 100 Octane aviation gas stepped up eight times, Training orie pilot uses more gas than the average car owner uses in 18 years. Jn one hour, a Flying Fortress inirns up enough gasoline to last the average car owner ahout six months. You can make only a little more than half as much 100 Octane gas as you can regular automotive gasoline from a barrel of petroleum, Fighiing forces must come first and will get wbal ibcy need. As a result, the home front gets less than h wants. The biggest part must go to the essential home front—farms, trucks, buses, industry, your doctor.
