Boffetti said he still wants to try to resolve questions about pre-buy liabilities and his office will continue the review of what went wrong. A host of factors were in play, including a malfunctioning phone system at Fred Fuller and a winter cold snap.
Perry Plummer, director of New Hampshire Emergency Management and Homeland Security, said Friday night that 1,750 individuals had called the hotline. Of that number, 140 people said they ran out of fuel.
Simon Leeming, an attorney for Fred Fuller Oil, said the company appreciated working collaboratively with the state to ensure customers were served. The company apologizes to the customers affected and, with delivery problems behind it, looks forward to continuing to serve customers.
