Gas and oil was a big ration. Not only did we have to fuel our own planes, tanks, jeeps, etc... but also those of our ally Britain which was suffering a shortage of just about everything, thanks to the Nazi "wolf packs" or U-boat blockades that sank supply ships on their way to England. The English people suffered enormously being an island with limited resources.

Aside from petrolium, there were scrap metal drives, rubber drives, and the whole idea of a victory garden was to grow your own vegetables so the food could be sent to the troops. But this was probably more of a symbolic gesture to boost morale and show support.
