Governor LePage said many drivers will soon be approaching their federal limit on hours of operation and will have to stop making deliveries.
The proclamation waives those regulations, allowing the drivers to work more hours.
The governor issued a statement saying "Our oil delivery drivers need the flexibility to be on the roads so Mainer's can heat their homes over the next several days".
The order will remain in effect until Sunday or until the Governor declares the emergency is over.
