Air strikes against North Vietnam in September and early October continued at a high level with particular emphasis on lines of communication (LOCs), dispersed POL storage sites, and transportation equipment. The campaign against North Vietnamese POL continues to chip away at the country's bulk and dispersed storage capacity, making it more difficult to import and distribute POL. The North Vietnamese, however, have expended great efforts in dispersing and concealing the remaining POL stocks, thus making these sites more difficult and costly targets for US forces. There is no evidence yet of a shortage of POL in North Vietnam.
