Hudson-based oil company’s delivery delays create concern
The company was taking calls from customers for deliveries on Sunday night, with one operator reporting that a “full crew” was on duty.
An 81-year-old Bedford man said Sunday he had to pay a premium for another fuel dealer to bring him oil after not receiving a delivery since mid-November, despite a prepaid automatic delivery contract.
That proved to be too long, and with the gauge on his tank hovering at the empty mark, the Bedford resident said he turned to another company, which only had the capacity to provide 100 gallons of fuel.
The delivery issues have been blamed on a spike in demand brought on by the severe cold weather of the past several days and telephone system problems that led to difficulty reaching the company.
“The Governor is very concerned about the issues with Fred Fuller Oil Co., and our office, the Office of Energy and Planning, and the Attorney General’s office have been in constant communication about the situation,” he said.
