Governor Rendell Issues Emergency Declaration to Ease Propane, Heating Fuel Deliveries

Drivers Allowed 14 Hours On Road

Harrisburg – Governor Edward G. Rendell today signed an emergency declaration to ease deliveries of propane and heating fuels during the current cold snap.

The Governor’s declaration waives the normal federal hours of service requirements for drivers of trucks carrying propane gas and heating fuel.

Drivers usually must take a mandatory rest period after 11 hours behind the wheel. Under the declaration, the limit is extended to 14 hours.


The propone and heating fuel industries sought relief from the limits to help ease the logistical challenges posed by severe weather conditions across much of the northeastern United States.

The declaration is in force until Jan. 21.

Bet if you were one of the people that run out and had to wait an extra day, you wouldn't be so quick to judge.

Hiring more drivers is easier said than done.

First of all they must have 3 consecutive years of CDL driving with a clean record, Second they must have Hazmat on their CDL.

Truck drivers are just like the farmers and loggers...a dying breed!
