  • Well Butane season started early
  • Thanks to hurricane Harvey our Butane season started early and with a vengeance. Theyblend Butane into gasoline 7to9 % in warmer weather then 11% or more in colder month.The hurricane knocked out most of the refineries in Texas and now they are predicting gas shortages, so refineries in other parts of the country have to step it up some. The government suspended hours of service regulations for truckers hauling fuel and products related to the mfg. of fuel until the end of sept. or longer if needed.We have already been running like crazy trying to keep up and it is only going to get worse before it gets better. I just put in three 15 hour days ( they're taking it easy on me)I had one 19 hour day before that. As of this wed. I go back to full time 5 days a week instead of 4.I'll do that thru the winter then hopefully get to go back to part time,I'll be 69 in Nov. so I really don't want to work that kind of hours but when the times get tough you step up to the plate and do your part.Gotta keep the gasoline flowing! God Bless, Beth and Allen.
