America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. Railroad cars stand on a side track ready to receive cargoes of gasoline stored in large spherical tanks at the refinery of one of the principal U.S. oil companies. The cars will speed the gasoline across the American continent to seaports where it will be loaded onto tanker ships for conveyance overseas to the armed forces of the United Nations. Gasoline totals have reached new records since the U.S. entered the war. Besides the enormous amounts required to fuel the 180,000 planes American factories have turned out since December 7, 1941, large supplies of fuel are needed for naval vessels, merchant ships, tanks and mechanized units in the field. It takes 25,000 gallons of gasoline to move a single U.S. Army tank division 100 miles (160 kilometers)
