Controlling price of gas during war
Regarding “Chrome, schrome. Truckers are all about mileage now.” (The Garage, May 17):
If I remember correctly, about the time I was in the Navy during World War II, our government had a department called the Office of Price Administration. I believe its purpose was to control the cost of goods during wartime.
The enormous cost of gasoline is placing a tremendous hardship on so many Americans, while the oil companies are making record profits. Why couldn’t an OPA be instituted by our government again?
