Whitney Cassell, the Crisis Fuel and Warmth Coordinator at CVOEO said high fuel prices and inflation are leading more Vermonters to look into fuel assistance this winter. That affects new and old clients living on tight budgets.

"Our clients that have fixed incomes, their income is not increasing, but the price of fuel certainly is," Cassell said.

"The other end of that scale is, maybe folks who have been able to pay for their heating needs all along, and they might have a decent income, but that income is just not keeping up with the cost of fuel," she added.
