closing of all business establishments on February 12 to avoid .a fuel shortage,
those' in the' City of Philadelphia were reduced because of' a curtailment in
. public transportation service oji February-11 and 12, and those in Pittsburgh
"were reduced because stores closed on February 12"owing to- a power shortage.
