Description 
Application for Gasoline Rations filled out by Pearl Hansen. Gasoline was rationed during World War II due to the high demand for its use by the military. Gasoline consumption was regulated and special allowances were made for civilians who worked farms or had to commute to jobs. Pearl Hansen's daughters, Arleen and Audrey, both worked for Waite Carpet Company during World War II and had to drive to work from their rural home.
