Frozen jet fuel is wreaking havoc with the nation\’s air travelers on Monday.

Officials with American Airlines said it\’s so cold that fuel supplies are frozen at multiple airports in the Midwest and Northeast, including American\’s hub at Chicago O\’Hare.

American spokesman Matt Miller said the airline has already canceled 750 flights on Monday and more cancellations are likely.

Miller said there\’s little to no snow or precipitation causing the delays – it\’s the bitterly cold temperatures.

American employees at the affected airports are only able to be on the ramps for \”a few minutes at a time because wind chills are as low as 45 below zero,\” Miller said.
