Some of the reasons for this dismal outlook are largely twofold. One is the pros. pective loss of income due to tm shortage; the ()thor is the falling off in gasoline sales the latter be- ing a sequence to the former. State roads in West Virginia as every one knows are largely con- struc!ed and maintained by the tax on gasoline. When sales of thi. pro('.uct Fall off, a corresponding slump in state income for road re- parinff ellS(lOS. Road workers have been advsed to secure employment wherever they can. They are promised their job.-. will be open to them whenever gasoline revenues revive.

Some of the reasons for this dismal outlook are largely twofold. One is the pros. pective loss of income due to tm shortage; the ()thor is the falling off in gasoline sales the latter be- ing a sequence to the former. State roads in West Virginia as every one knows are largely con- struc!ed and maintained by the tax on gasoline. When sales of thi. pro('.uct Fall off, a corresponding slump in state income for road re- parinff ellS(lOS. Road workers have been advsed to secure employment wherever they can. They are promised their job.-, will be open to them whenever gasoline revenues revive.
