(Studio) Fuel shortage, whether real or fabricated, felt around country. In Lakeland, Florida, hijackers steal gas truck. In Nebraska farmers buying fuel on black market
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Newman Grove, Nebraska) [Fuel distributor Ken WARREN - says fuel needed. Must get it somewhere although 10 cents higher a gallon from closed market] Most farmers say will continue buying gas from own suppliers as long as possible rather than support black market suppliers. Wondering if real shortage when black market gas abundant. Without fuel for irrigation pumps to grow crops won't have to worry about fuel for harvesting. Won't be anything to harvest.
