REC/GOV/059. Fuel, Advisory Committee on.

 Record Group Term
Identifier: REC/GOV/059
In November 1947, members of the petroleum industry in Connecticut believed there was a danger of a severe fuel oil shortage during the coming winter. Per their request, Governor McConaughy appointed ten industry representatives to an Advisory Committee on Fuel. The Committee met frequently and worked to establish cooperative agreements between members to facilitate supply and transportation of oil into the state, assist small and unequipped dealers whose supply was threatened, and organize local committees to deal with emergency situations. In the spring, the crisis appeared to be over and the Committee concluded its work in March 1948. Records include the Committee’s report to the Governor, correspondence, workbooks, and subject files.
