Nikolski struggles with fuel crisis

The Aleutian village of Nikolski has been hovering on the edge of a fuel crisis for months. For the second year in a row, the shipment of fuel that Delta Western Fuels was supposed to deliver in the early fall didn’t arrive. Local authorities are now spending huge sums of money to get a few barrels of heating oil at a time delivered on planes and fishing boats.
