Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, September 8, 2008. Robert deV. Frierson, Deputy Secretary of the Board. [FR Doc. E8–21082 Filed 9–10–08; 8:45 am] A. Background The Federal Management Regulation (FMR), Subpart B, section 102–34.335 (41 CFR 102–34.335), requires drivers to use the grade (octane rating) of fuel recommended by the motor vehicle manufacturer when fueling motor vehicles owned or leased by the Government. Present restrictions prohibit the use of premium grade fuel in motor vehicles owned or leased by the Government that will operate on a lower grade of fuel. As a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Gustav, executive agencies may encounter fuel shortages in the affected areas and may not be able to acquire lower grade fuel for their vehicles to complete their missions. The original intent of section 102–34.335 was to reduce fuel costs and the unnecessary use of premium fuel in vehicles capable of being operated on lower grade fuel. This bulletin, B–20, provides a deviation for executive agencies to purchase premium fuel for Government owned and leased vehicles when lower grade fuels are not available due to market shortages in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas due to the flooding and damage from Hurricane Gustav. 52859 GSA Bulletin FTR 08–10 may be found at www.gsa.gov/bulletin. DATES: The bulletin announced in this notice became effective on August 31, 2008. For clarification of content, contact General Services Administration, Office of Governmentwide Policy, Office of Travel, Transportation and Asset Management, at (202) 501–1777. Please cite FTR Bulletin 08–10. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A. Background As a result of the flooding and damage caused by Hurricane Gustav, agencies should consider delaying all nonessential TDY and relocation to the affected area for a period of 30 days. This is especially important with relocation travel because the 120-day maximum for TQSE cannot be extended due to statutory restrictions. Given the flooding and damage caused by the storm, we cannot effectively determine the extent to which the ability to secure lodgings will be compromised. In this case, each agency may determine whether this Bulletin applies to travel to areas which are impacted by Hurricane Gustav. BILLING CODE 6210–01–S B. Procedures B.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The Federal Management Regulation (FMR), Subpart B, section 102-
34.335 (41 CFR 102-34.335), requires drivers to use the grade (octane 
rating) of fuel recommended by the motor vehicle manufacturer when 
fueling motor vehicles owned or leased by the Government. Present 
restrictions prohibit the use of premium grade fuel in motor vehicles 
owned or leased by the Government that will operate on a lower grade of 
fuel.
    As a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Gustav, executive 
agencies may encounter fuel shortages in the affected areas and may not 
be able to acquire lower grade fuel for their vehicles to complete 
their missions. The original intent of section 102-34.335 was to reduce 
fuel costs and the unnecessary use of premium fuel in vehicles capable 
of being operated on lower grade fuel. This bulletin, B-20, provides a 
deviation for executive agencies to purchase premium fuel for 
Government owned and leased vehicles when lower grade fuels are not 
available due to market shortages in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, 
and Texas due to the flooding and damage from Hurricane Gustav.
