National Fuel yesterday said it is not experiencing any major delivery problems due to the cold weather. Company spokesman David Waples said there had been a few cases of gas outages due to meter freeze- ups or low pressure in isolated areas, and added that National Fuel workers were responding promptly to emergency calls.
