1974 Gas Ration Coupon

1974 Gas Ration Coupon

In 1973, strained relations with the Middle East resulted in an U.S. oil embargo! As supplies dwindled and gas prices skyrocketed, agitated Americans waited in long lines for gasoline, only to be turned away by the "No Gas" sign. The U.S. government urged conservation while they prepared for the worst. In 1974, they printed 4.8 billion gas ration coupons as part of a planned rationing system. However, because the gas crisis soon passed, these coupons were never used. And in 1984, the government ordered all but 2 sheets of coupons destroyed. But some of those intended to be destroyed found their way to the public. Two were even confiscated by the Secret Service! No longer pursued by the government, one of these coupons, in Crisp Uncirculated condition, fetched $1,350.00 at auction on February 29, 2000! We have coupons in Economy Grade that are affordably priced due to tears and small missing pieces. Our source tells us that these are some of the last coupons available, so they're sure to go fast - order yours today!
