What was the rationing allowences in world war two?
During the Second World War in the United States specifically civilian industries were required to convert to war material and supply production. This reallocation of nearly all resources to war output severely strained civilian goods and fuel supplies. Allowances and rationing limited American consumption on the home-front to allow those saved resources to be focused and diverted towards the war.

Why was rationing needed during World war 2?
Because victory in the war was paramount, the government issued rations so that the military would receive the necessary materials needed to fight the Nazis. Every citizen had to do their part, be it fighting on the front lines by enlisting or being drafted or doing what they could on the homefront to help out.
