Foster Fuels Comes to the Rescue After Power Outages in Texas

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Foster Fuels has been delivering fuel to critical infrastructure and crews working to restore power in the aftermath of the 2021 Texas ice storms that left more than four million people without power.

The storm devastated access to local fuel reserves within Texas. As a result, Foster has been sourcing fuel from 12 states, some as far away as Utah and Ohio, dispensing around 500,000 gallons of fuel.

Senior Vice President Will Rohrig said, “Road travel has been challenging as our trucks move further south, but we have been able to use information from DOT and highway webcams to direct our team in the safest route. Not only do we have our eyes on the road, but also on keeping our drivers and the public safe from COVID. The vast majority of our drivers are vaccinated, and all are following appropriate protocols.”

This marks the end of one full week of relief efforts in Texas. Foster expects their mission will continue for at least one to two more weeks. Rohrig said, “We are proud of the men and women working hard to help those affected and we look forward to all of them returning home safely to their families.”
