SHELBURNE, Vt(WCAX) Carroll Isham has been delivering fuel for about 20 yearsIsham has been working nonstop in what he says is one of the coldest stretches since he has been on the job. "I don't remember any stretches like this," Isham said. Which means his customers are burning more fuel and calling his phone to refuel their tanks. "It's been a lot busier than normal just because of the cold weather," he said"Usually, I can average winter days like 4,000 gallons or so, and right now, it's probably like six or more thousand gallons a day." Isham and all other heating fuel delivery drivers are able to work overtime since the state declared a home heating fuel emergency, which waives the federal rules and allows them to work longer hours to deliver more fuel. "We've got a lot of people that we've got to get the customers, so the emergency declaration helps us in that effort," said Matt Coat of the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association"It was more important that those tanks are full in that people's homes stay warm rather than complying with that specific law."
