Bureaucracy : Application for Basic "a" or "d" Mileage Ration: For Passenger Automobiles or Motorcycles Only

These certificates are fuel oil ration certificates issued in 1943 as part of the WWII rationing program administered by the United States Office of Price Administration. They were issued to Abbie F. Stevens of Waltham, Massachusetts in 1942 and were used between November 1942 and April 1943. Each certificate had coupons attached to each side, which Stevens would have exchanged for oil and gasoline. There is also a log on each certificate that documents the dates and amounts of deliveries received by Stevens.
