7620.0420 SEVERE SHORTAGE.

If the commissioner determines that the supply shortfall of petroleum and petroleum products is so severe that the existing production and distribution system is incapable of providing adequate supplies to all first priority consumers of motor fuel or diesel fuel, then the commissioner shall advise the governor that deliveries to otherwise priority consumers be curtailed, so that higher priority consumers will be provided the necessary fuel to continue essential operations. The governor may order the curtailment of priority consumers when in the governor's judgment, the available supply best serves to preserve the health and safety of the citizens of the state when put to a higher priority use.
