Last Year We Used About 22,000,000 Gallons of Gasoline a Day....

Notes: A homefront poster from the middle of the Second World War explaining the need for gasoline rationing on the East Coast. It reads (ellipses or ... in the original),

"Last year... we used about 22,000,000 gallons of gasoline a day in the gasoline rationed Eastern States alone. This year... Because of the loss of tankers to carry gasoline, and the warload on all ships and railroads, only 11,000,000 gallons of gasoline a day can be brought into the Eastern States. That is why... Gasoline must be rationed... So that everybody can get enough for his necessary driving during the war."

10-1/4 by 14 inches.

Edition + Condition: A fine example. One old fold. This is an original World War II poster, not a reproduction.
