RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Beverly Perdue has temporarily eased restrictions on truck drivers because of winter weather, so they can keep delivering needed gasoline, home heating oil and other fuels in North Carolina.

Perdue said Friday she had signed an executive order suspending federal rules limiting how long a truck driver can work transporting essential fuels.

She said the frigid conditions and recent snow and ice in western North Carolina caused her to sign the exemption so citizens can get the fuels they need for their vehicles and homes.

The executive order signed Thursday will remain in effect up to 30 days.
