Catching up on deliveries

Truck drivers fill their tankers with heating oil at Buckeye Terminals' facility on Eastern Point Road in Groton on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018. The facility stores and distributes diesel, home heating oil and biodiesel from 867,000 gallons of tank capacity on the Thames River. Gary Rasmussen of Buckeye Terminals said higher temperatures the last couple days had helped truck drivers catch up on deliveries throughout the region. He added there was no shortage of oil supply during the recent cold snap, but the high demand stretched manpower and equipment thin. 'These guys have been working around the clock,' he said. 'They're tired and working 60 hours a week. It's been crazy.'  (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)
