Gas ration stickers


May 27 - If you've been in the hobby for a while, chances are that you've seen gas ration stickers in the right corner of the windshields of restored cars. When World War II broke out, the U.S. Office of Price Administration (OPA) rationed gasoline on May 15, 1942, starting on the east coast and nationwide that December to assist in the war effort. This was in reaction to shortages of gasoline, and stickers were introduced to control the amount of gasoline that the public consumed.

By law, the stickers had to be affixed to the lower right side of the windshield. Most car hobbyists have seen the “A” gas ration sticker, but there were several more types issued.
